235. The first pandius dyeing.

In the first pandius dyeing, process the skins in the same way as was said above and treat them with alum. After the alum treatment, wash off the mordant and dip them in vitriol; after the dipping wash them well. Then compound vermiculum, as we taught above [chap. 230]; and put some of the broth of this concoction into bladders and process them in the usual way; and when the confection has been poured out, dip the sheepskins, wash them and dry them.
