Abstract

About the etymology of ap(p)iosus (equus) in Pelag. 29 and the problematic relationship between the adjective and the title of the chapter, cursus lunae. The solution of M. Ihm, followed by K.-D. Fischer (Gr. selinites > Lat. apiosus [selinon = apium], then confusion with selenites/selenitis [< selene]), is reversed, with special reference to the presence of selinon in the healing potions and the connection of the ap(p)iosus’ symptoms with moon influence (see e.g. the ophthalmic disease called ‘moon blindness’).
