"...For your merchants were the great men of the earth, for by your sorcery all the nations were deceived."
Sorcery in the Greek is translated to Pharmakeia.

I'm of the notion that every seed bearing-herb was put here for the
benefit of mankind. So what would have been considered pharmaceuticals
in ancient times?
