ΠΕΡΙ ΕΟΡΤΩΝ

Fr. 84. Joannes Lydus, De Mensibus, IV, 87 (Wünsch).

Ἰστέον δέ, ὡς ὁ Μανέθων ἐν τῷ περὶ ἑορτῶν λέγει τὴν ἡλιακὴν ἔκλειψιν πονηρὰν ἐπίρροιαν ἀνθρώποις ἐπιφέρειν περί τε τὴν κεφαλὴν καὶ τὸν στόμαχον.

On Festivals.

Fr. 84 (from Joannes Lydus).

It must be understood that Manetho in his book On Festivals1 states that a solar eclipse exerts a baneful influence upon men in their head and stomach.
