John Eliot, formerly at Exeter College and a Doctor of Medicine of both Universities, practised successfully in Canterbury and removed an exceptionally large urinary stone from the bladder of an eight-year-old girl with his own hands. He gave it to the Museum together with two naturally formed stones, one of them mounted in bronze, which resemble the horn of Ammon.
