Caption: Solomon's seal (Polygonatum bianco). 16th Century Italian illustration by Gherardo Cibo of a Solomon's seal plant, with two men resting beneath it and a village in the background.

Pietro Andrea Mattioli (1501-1577) was an Italian doctor and naturalist who wrote commentaries on "De Materia Medica", an encyclopaedia of herbal medicine by the first century Greek physician and botanist Dioscorides.
