This man has made records of dinners in 11 books in hexameter verse; also Noumenios [sc. has written] a cookbook, and Matreas the Pitanean, and Hegemon the Thasian, who is called Lentil-soup;[1] and Artemidoros, the Pseudoaristophanean, who collected cookery writings;[2] and Philoxenos the son of Leukadios, from whom also Philoxenean flat-cakes [are named]. But Philoxenos was a gourmand to such an extent that openly in the baths he accustomed his hand to heat, putting it into hot water and gargling his mouth with hot water, so that he would be impervious to heat. And he used to instruct the cooks that they serve [him] the hottest [food] and that he alone should use it up. But they also tell many stories about Archytas. And Crobylos says, "But me, against these excessively hot [foodstuffs] I'm holding veritably Idaean (meaning chilly) dactyls, and I vaporize my throat most willingly with slices of fish."[3]
