With a Grain of Salt. KN DADSPWR
The earliest record of the saying,
"With a grain of salt," dates back to EgihCnttto' hoyo ihso
the year 63 B. C.. when the great Pomn

and discovered among his private pa-TeaeaeAmrcn fak
pers the description of an antidoteedt aniaofhepwr
against poisons of all sorts, which was v
composed of pounded herbs. These, ac- o igEwrwudpoal
cording to the recipe, were to b~e taken rpysmtigatrti ah

became the custom to say that doubt-thBriscottuonhekg

From this the meaning got trans- n ngnrlde rtymc
ferred to sayings of doubtful truth. imet elshi.
"Ati salt"-was a Greek synonym for TeAeia o~ hshv
wit or penetration, and the Latin word asee codn otesii
"Sal" had somewhat of the same mean-ofBihhlasyteCicg
