The term “ROB” means a thick, fruit-based syrup. This product was developed by Dr Boyveau toward the end of the 18th century and was supposed to have anti-syphilis properties. Boyveau partnered with Laffecteur to promote his product. Unfortunately, Laffecteur developed his own product to compete with Boyveau. The present token promotes Laffecteur’s product. Finally Boyveau succeeded and his product continued to be sold for a long period of time.
