A contribution to the history of Toxicology evidence is given here, namely that Nicander was artistpoet-naturalist-physician, that he was libelled as merely a versifier and metaphrast, that his depiction of poisonous serpents and the effects of their venom on man was original and veracious and that his work has had recognition from and influence on writers about serpents for centuries.
