This is the first treatise on animal poisons by the doctor and poet of antiquity, Nicandro of Colophon (2nd Century B.C.).

The Greek text appears together with its Latin translation and an analysis (differentiated by the smaller italics used for its composition) by Pedro Jaime Esteve (c.1500-1558), professor of the University of Valencia and the founder of its school of renaissance-oriented doctors and naturalists.

This work is one of the greatest Spanish examples of scientific classics, with incorporated analysis and is one of the most impeccable Greek texts published in XVI century Spain.
