Of Terra Sigillata. Chap. 98.

A Certaine veine of the earth is called Terra sigillata, and is singularly cold and dry. And Dioscorides calleth it Ter∣ra saracenica and argentea, and is some deale white, well smelling & cléere. The chiefe vertue thereof bindeth and staun∣cheth. And pouder thereof tempered with the white of an Egge, stancheth bléeding at the nose: and helpeth against swelling of the féete, and against the gowte, if it be laide in a plaistre thereto, as it is said in Lapidario.
