      I'm a pharmacist (PharmD) by trade, I think I'm seeing "Luton", is that correct? Can you take a closer and larger picture? I'm pretty sure I know, but want to make sure!
      Very nice find, btw!

      Sorry, "Lotun"?

      Aether is latin for Ether, so Lotum would make more sense...is it an "m"?
      I would be very careful with this stuff, though it dies look to be quite old, the chemicals from it's breakdown can be more dangerous...sulfuric acid, arsenic, etc.
      Is the substance yellowish? Have any odor?
      Sorry, I just find this personally fascinating! :)

      Hi! I see aether lotum. I think the 'lotum' means 'washed'.
      But I'm looking forward to knowing what aether lotum means.
      Perhaps it's a little bit of alchemy?
      Or is it just 'filler'?
