Caption: Sweet violet (Viola odorata). 16th Century Italian illustration by Gherardo Cibo of a viola plant in flower, with a woman gathering plants near a watermill. This plate is taken from “Discorsi” on Dioscorides' “De Materia Medica” by Pietro Andrea Mattioli, a work of herbal medicine first published in Italy in 1554. 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.
