Cairo Genizah : Medical


Cairo Genizah

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Collection of medicinal recipes possibly by a druggist, who is referred to as ‘the Damascene’ (Al-Dimašqī). A large number of simples are mentioned, including saffron, bdellium, pepper, Indian myrrh, almonds, sandalwood, cinnamon, rose-water, honey, sesame seeds, sesame oil, lemon, and vinegar. The appearance of the handwriting suggests that these were possibly notes taken by the druggist for his own use, a handbook for his practice.</p>
