Caption: Hedge-hyssop. 16th century Italian illustration of hedge-hyssop (Gratiola officinalis), by Gherardo Cibo, 1568. Known as herba gratia dei, or herb of grace, hedge-hyssop was used traditionally as a cathartic, an emetic, and to treat worms. 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.
