Firmicus Maternus’s style and language suggest that medela illis <ignitis> cauteriorum adustionibus conferatur should be restored at Mathesis 4.9.5; the omission of the word was easily produced by homeoteleuton with illis. In the previous sentence, the medieval conjecture vulnera infligit in lieu of vulnera inficit is probably right.
