οὐκ ἀλόγως ἐν διζύφοις δύναμίν τινα θείαν
εἶναι ἔφην. χθὲς γοῦν † δίζυφον ἐν χρονίῳ
ἠπιάλῳ κάμνοντι τεταρταίῳ περιῆψα,
καὶ γέγονεν ταχέως, οἷα κρότων, ὑγιής.

— Paton edition

I was not wrong in saying that there is a divine
virtue in dizyphi.¹ The other day at least I applied a
dizyphos to one suffering from a chronic quartan ague,
and he became at once as fit as a dog-tick.

Paton Edition: 1 An unknown word, but possibly another form of ζίζυφον, the fruit of the jujube-tree.
