Caption: Saffron crocus (Crocus sativus). 16th Century Italian illustration by Gherardo Cibo of a saffron crocus plant in flower, with two women gathering flowers on a mountaintop nearby.

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.
