Simon's "cestras", which appears as ''cestris'' in the source text, i.e. Dioscorides Longobardus, 4, 22, ed. Stadler (1901: 18f) ''De xeris'', is most likely a ghost word, i.e. the scion of a misread/ misinterpreted/ misremembered word that owes its existence to some infelicity. ''Cestris'' is not mentioned anywhere else in the literature except in quotes from Dioscorides Longobardus, 4 ,22. The word could well be nothing more than a corruption of xeris.

Commentary:

Cestras:
Simon's cestras, which appears as cestris in the source text, i.e. Dioscorides Longobardus, 4, 22, ed. Stadler (1901: 18f) De xeris [[1]], is most likely a ghost word, i.e. the scion of a misread/ misinterpreted/ misremembered word that owes its existence to some infelicity. Cestris is not mentioned anywhere else in the literature except in quotes from Dioscorides Longobardus, 4 ,22. The word could well be nothing more than a corruption of xeris.
