Supplement no. III with DC: apuleius-manuscript Library of Leiden (Bibl. Publ. Lat. 1283): prescription on the digging up of the root, by a drawing of the demonic plant and the dog explained. E.
Supplement no. VI with § 61f: In a manuscript found by Sudhoff from the 12th century, Pseudo Apuleius: de Medica minibus herbarum, again lengthy regulations are described. But the writer does not seem very convinced of the evil that emanated from: Those hell8ish fires light, / tha mandrakes charnel leaves at night. He repeatedly tells to have seen a mandrake being dug up, even in unfavourable winds, without any obvious danger to be connected to it. H.
With § 61h, sub II, ES: The mandrake was called a wander-herb, if one stepped on it one could not find the way anymore. Thus in Perigord. See also notes 1946, fol. 78e. H.
