Intestinal concretions (calculi or stones in the intestines).
Calculi may be globular, ovoid, cylindrical, and truncated cones.
Hence the Greek name ψηφοι, and the Roman calculi and scrupuli; from whence scrupus, a table-man, or chessman.
The number of calculi which may be present at any time or be produced in the course of years ranges from one to several thousand.
