The Medieval Bestiary
Seps and Dipsa /seps et dipsa/ 10X3.2 cm
The text, which includes quotations from Lucan, repeats the story by Isidor /XII.IV.31 —32/ and Albert the Great /XXV.II.21.52/. The venom of the seps penetrates right into the bones of a man bit by the snake, and the venom of the dipsa works so instantly that the man bit by it does not show suffering.
