Of Ferula. chap. 71.

FErula is an hearb, and the iuyce ther∣of is called Galbanum, as Isidore say∣eth, libro. 17. Thereof is mention made Eccle. 24. where is mention made of Sto∣rax and Galbanum. There the Glose sayth, that Plini. sayth, that Galbanum groweth in Syria, in a certein hill, where plentie is of Ferula. And out therof Gal∣banum runneth, as it were Rosen. And libro. 20. cap. 24. Plinius saith, that the seede of Ferula is lyke to Annet, and the leaues and the boughes thereof sodde in Oyle and eaten with honnie, accorteth to the stomacke: but it maketh the head ake if men eate thereof too much. And a pennie weight of the roote thereof dronk in two Cyates of Wine, helpeth against the biting of Serpents. Iuyce thereof dronke in ye quantitie of a Beane, sayeth the wombe. The gréene pith thereof doth away silth of the fare. The séede there∣of dronken in Wine stauncheth bloud, and helpeth them which haue the fal∣ling euill. And the iuyce thereof helpeth cleerenesse of the eyen. Huc vsque Pla∣teanus.
