Ancient Antivenom?

Does anyone have any handy links on ancient (or at least very old) antivenom beyond putting a goat on your head or drinking chicken's blood on a full moon? I need something that at least sounds plausible and the best I can think of is doing something with the blood of an animal that's been bitten by the snake/spider/thing in question and kinda hoping it's built up antibodies or something.

...I'm clearly not a med student.

So yeah, before I go and make a complete arse of myself, I thought I might ask here, just cos a lot of useful ancient-medicine-related links have cropped up on talechasing in the past =3
