Dr. Rez’io
or Pedro Rezio of Ague’ro. The doctor of Barata’ria, who forbade Sancho Panza to taste any of the meats set before him. Roasted partridge was forbidden by Hippoc’rats; podri’da was the most pernicious food in the world; rabbits are a sharp-haired diet; veal is prejudicial to health; but the governor might eat a “few wafers, and a thin slice or two of quince.” (Don Quixote, part ii. book iii. chap. 10.)   1
