  • ἢν δὲ καὶ ἐν αἵματι ἀπεψίη ξυμβῇ, γίγνεται τὸ αἷμα χολοειδὲσ, σκίδναται δὲ παντὶ τρέφον· διὰ τόδε παντὶ φαίνεται χολή· δεινὸν μὲν γὰρ τὸ πάθοσ, φοβερὴ δὲ ἡ χρόη εἴδεϊ, καὶ χρυσοει δέεσ ἐάσι τὴν χροιήν· οὐ γὰρ ἀνθρώπῳ εὐπρεπὲσ ὅ γε ἐν λίθῳ καλὸν ἐῄ· περιττὸν δέ μοι φράζειν καὶ πόθεν τοὔνομα, πλὴν ὁκόσον τῶν χερσαίων ἰκτίδων τῶν τετραπόδων θηρίων, τοιοῖσι δὲ ἐάσι οἱ ὦπεσ ὁ ῖοίδε. (Aretaeus, The Extant Works of Aretaeus, The Cappadocian., , 317)
