Doctor's Medical Recipe from Babylon

Recipes involving plant and vegetable drugs were written on this clay tablet, but the purpose was not mentioned. Unlike many medical documents, it is a doctor's working copy rather than a library reference work. Probably from Babylon, Mesopotamia, Iraq. Circa 600-400 BCE. (The British Museum, London)
