Deleterion is a Greek word found in Cassius Felix’s De medicina, the chapter De ilio "On ileus {a severe kind of colic, the iliac pains}", Greek deleterion denotes lethal food or drink or poisonous mushrooms and similar items.


Greek δηλητήριος /dēlētḗrios/, neuter δηλητήριον /dēlētḗrion/, means "noxious", often used in conjunction with {or understood} φάρμακον /phármakon/, where it means "poison". See entry Delitiron.

Simon refers to Cassius Felix’s De medicina, chapter LI, Ad colicam et iliacam {"On colic and the iliac pain"}, 2, ed. Fraisse (2001: 147). This text is also available online editied by V. Rose (1870: 132) [[1]].
