“Ad deliquium” means: “With reference to a bloodletting procedure: to the point at which the patient feels faint or faints (from loss of blood)’ (OED). I struggled to find the real thing, but it looks as though some children had been practising and abandoned the patient once she fainted.

Day #40 of the second 365 project, where the daily pic is informed by the OED word of the day.
