    Modern Linnean’s views of the world

    by Carmen Maya Posta

    Title: Dictamnus

    @ Monte Adone (Bologna, Italy) 2014

     

    Eneide, Libro XII

    Qui la madre Venere, turbata dall’immeritato dolore

    del figlio, colse sull’Ida cretese il dittamo,

    stelo dalle rigogliose foglie e chiamato da fiori

    purpurei;[….] e tutto il sangue

    stagnò nella profonda ferita. [vv. 411-414 421-422]
