1r-43r  Michael Psellus and Symeon Seth, Compendium medicum de cibarium facultate (TLG 3113.002; Iter Psellianum no. 1045 (CET.DISC.26; pp. 437-444)). Moore (p. 437) says "the text is really an explanation of Aetius Amidenus['] Iatricorum libri xvi, with material drawn from Dioscorides['] Liber de alimentis. Apparently Psellos wrote the work for the emperor Constantine IX. Monomachos. It was then revised for Michael VII. Doukas by Symeon Seth, who wrote a brief introduction (the proem.), made some corrections in the text, omitting some chapters. The work deals with some two hundred and twenty-eight plants and animals." Cf.
