  3. Laurence M. V. Totelin (2007). Sex and Vegetables in the Hippocratic Gynaecological Treatises. Studies in History and Philosophy of Science Part C 38 (3):531-540.

    Two kinds of sources are available to the historian to reconstruct the first centuries of the history of Mithradates' antidote: biographical information on Mithradates' interests in medicine, and a series of recipes. In this paper I argue that we cannot reconstruct the original recipe of Mithridatium from our existing sources.
