Quinolons are a family of antibiotics, while amoxycillin is a member of the "penicillin/beta lactam" family.
And Fleming, Florey and Chain had no moldy cheese sandwich but old moldy media plates to grow their bacterial culture...
But I think the moldy cheese sandwich could have made a good stat for the history
