CAP. LIV. De Encanthide.
〈 in non-Latin alphabet 〉, is the immoderate increase and swelling of the Caruncle, or little flesh, in the great corner of the Eye, caused through too much blood flowing to the part.
Si magnum & antiquum malum est, non nisi Chrurgiâ curatur.
Encanthis, at first, is cured by the use of burnt Allum: In the cure great heed must be taken, that no more be eaten away, but that which is superfluous, lest it turn to Rhyas.
