From the category of alternative methods of treatment. Pliny the Elder states that wounds and bruises are best treated with dried dung of wild boar taken in spring. Such a method is recommended, for example, in the case of wounds, after the coachman was pulled behind a chariot or some part of the body was crushed by the wheel.
Pliny also suggests that instead of dry ones, you can also apply “fresh” droppings to the body.
