Caption: Illustration after a woodcut of Monkshood, or Wolf's Bane, (Aconitum napellus). This is a highly poisonous plant, used in very dilute form as a herbal analgesic. The main ingredient, aconitine, is a powerful neurotoxin. This illustration was taken from "Commentarii in Sex Libros Pedacii Dioscoridis" by Pierandrea Matthioli of 1565 (second edition).
