Caption: Sea holly. 16th century Italian illustration of a sea holly (Eryngium sp.), by Gherardo Cibo. Eryngium extracts have been used traditionally for their anti-inflammatory properties. This plate is taken from Dioscorides' 'de re Medica' by Pietro Andrea Mattioli, a work of herbal medicine published in Italy circa 1564-1584. 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.
