Instructions concerning a perforation in his temple , penetrating
to the bone, (and) perforating his temporal bone
If thou examinest a man having a wound in his temple, penetrating to
the bone , (and) perforating his temporal bone, while his two eyes are
blood-shot , he discharges blood from both his nostrils, and a little
drops : if thou puttest thy fingers on the mouth of that wound (and)
he shudder exceedingly ; if thou askest of him concerning his malady
and he speaks not to thee ; while copious tears fall from both his eyes,
so that he thrusts his hand often to his face that he may wipe both
his eyes with back of his hand as a child does , and knows not that he
does so .
Thou shouldst say concerning him : "One having a wound in his temple,
penetrating to the bone , (and) perforating his temporal bone, while
he discharges blood from both his nostrils he suffers with stiffness
in his neck, (and) he is speechless. An ailment not to be treated."
Now when thou findest that man speechless, his relief shall be sitting ;
soften his head with grease, (and) pour milk into both his ears .
