Dama

(From deima, fear; from its timidity). Fallow deer; cervus dama Lin. The venison of a deer killed, when cool, differs much from that of one heated with exercise. The fibres of the first are harder, the flesh more tough, and less easily soluble in the stomach; but, in general, it is an alkalescent, sapid animal, considered as a delicacy, and of easy digestion. (See Aliment). Medicinal virtues have been attributed to different parts. The recent blood, drunk immediately from the veins, hath been said to remove vertigo; the gall to be detersive, and take away films from the eyes; the liver hath been recommended in diarrhoea, the horns are of the same nature as those of the stag, and the fat or suet agrees perfectly with that of the same animal.
