¶Of Thimo. cap. 171.
THimus, is an hearbe with good sa∣vour, & Virgil speaketh so thereof, & sayth, that sweete donie sauoureth of it. The floure thereof is called Epithium, and is a medicinable floure, and clean∣seth and purgeth melancholy and fleme, and helpeth therefore against the sicke∣nesse called the •uartane, and against diuers and manye other melancholicke euills, and grieuous passions.
(*Thimum Creticum, Thimum du∣riue. Time of Candie, & common time. It is hot and drye in the third degrée, a medicinable hearbe.
