¶Of Celidonia. cap. 46.
CElidonia is an hearbe with yeolowe floures, the fruite staineth them that it toucheth, and is called Celidonia, for it springeth or bloometh in the comming of Swallowes, as Isid. saith lib. 17. For a Swallow is called Celidon in Gréeke. Or els as Isidore saith, it is called Celi∣donia, because it helpeth Swallowes birdes if their eyen be hurt or blind. And Plinius rehearseth the same, & saith, that by the iuyce of Celidonia, Swallowes eyes turneth againe to the first state, if they be hurt or put out, and hath ver∣tues that be noble and good, and dissol∣ueth, draweth and wasieth, as Dioscori∣des saith, and abateth ache, and purgeth the head, and menstruall bloude, and cleanseth the Mother, and cure the F•∣ster and Canker of the mouth, as Plinius saieth, and Dioscorides, and Plateari∣us also.
