¶Of Noset. cap. 71.
NOset that is Orapondine, is a pre∣cious stone, some deale white, or of diuerse coulours. It is sayde that this stone is taken out of a Toads head, and is cleansed in the same head, & in strong Wine and water, as Dioscorides saith: and sometime the shape of a Toade see∣meth therein with sharpe feet & broade. This stone helpeth against biting of Serpents and of creeping Wormes, and against venim. For in presence of ve∣nimme, the stone warmeth and burneth his finger that toucheth him, as Diosco∣rides sayth.
