Vetting Status: high
A kind of very bitter plant, found among Laconians;[1] [the one] with which they used to smear the eyelids in the evening. And Aristophanes [writes] about Neoclides the bleary-eyed: "crushing spurge with garlic." Physicians are accustomed, out of boasting, to name the homelands of plants such as Cyrenaic juice,[2] Laconian spurge. But [bleary-eyed] is said in reference to those whose are purblind in their eyes, [such as] Neoclides the bleary-eyed.
