[This is what] Sicilian Greeks [call] heart-suffering; what we [call] boulimia=n ["to be starving"]. Apollodoros in the sixth [book] of On Epicharmus says that the Sicilians call 'having a stomach-ache because of hunger' kardiw/ttein[1] -- which Xenophon calls boulimia=n ["to be starving"].[2] And many call eu)ka/rdia ["things good for the stomach"] ta\ eu)sto/maxa.
