Origin of collyrium
Examples from the Web for collyrium
I have already had occasion to speak of the signification and qualities of the collyrium named Melinum.
One of the forms of the Collyrium Melinum given by Galen is professed by him to be efficacious “ad omnem oculorum hebetudinem.”
Collyrium, ko-lir′i-um, n. a term for various kinds of eye-salve or eye-wash.
The two first letters of the name of the collyrium are entirely obliterated.
If a letter, it is most likely C, standing perhaps for collyrium.
