Summary expansion
The first part gives advice on activities such as sleeping, resting and playing, while later sections list foods and herbs that range from cinnamon to turtle. Accompanying notes advise that fennel can be used to treat scorpion stings, the Persians who fought under Cyrus ate nasturtiums, and hard boiled eggs are bad for the digestion and difficult to use in recipes. The De honesta voluptate is one of the earliest modern studies on diet as central to a healthy lifestyle. While reading the classics as a scholar, Platina discovered that the interest the ancients had in what the Greeks called "dietam" was missing in his own times, and so sought to correct this. The author is best known for his histories of Mantua and the Papacy
