Tears of Lys
The tears of Lys is a rare and expensive poison, made by the alchemists of Lys. It is clear, tasteless, odorless, and leaves no trace. When dissolved into liquids and drunk, the poison eats away the bowels and belly of the victim, and appears to be a sickness of those parts. It is unknown if the poison has a connection with the Weeping Lady of Lys.
At the end of 54 AC, a maester and several women died on Dragonstone from a mysterious epidemic. Lord Rego Draz recognized the symptoms as those of the tears of Lys. The poisoner was Androw Farman, jealous of his wife Rhaena Targaryen's friendships with her ladies.

The tears of Lys, they call it. A rare and costly thing, clear and sweet as water, and it leaves no trace. I begged Lord Arryn to use a taster, in this very room I begged him, but he would not hear of it. Only one who was less than a man would even think of such a thing, he told me.
