Well, the man himself would have been horrified given that the Romans thought drinking beer was one step above strangling your parents in the barbarian stakes, but it still exists. And that makes me happy. Here's to Pliny!




And your Pliny the Elder remedy of the day: a wolf's liver in mulled wine will cure a cough. THE MORE YOU KNOW.

I can't wait until you're running your own apothecary on Etsy.

In the meantime, what does Pliny the Elder recommend for stress and procrastination?

I can't wait either but I am not going to buy, no way.

Not even the lynx hairs to keep yourself from love potions?

I will be channeling the wisdom of the ages. Or Pliny, at any rate.

If his nephew is right, Pliny would recommend stopping foolishness like walking and wasting valuable time you could be reading. Instead he would suggest getting yourself a litter and some fine strapping litter bearers and having yourself carried around so you could read and take notes. Oh and stuff a secretary in there with you, so he can take down your moments of genius.
