  • The Vienna Dioscurides or Vienna Dioscorides is an early 6th century illuminated manuscript of De Materia Medica by Dioscorides in Greek. It is an important and rare example of a late antique scientific text. The 491 vellum folios measure 37 by 30 cm and contain more than 400 pictures of animals and plants, most done in a naturalistic style.In addition to the text by Dioscorides, the manuscript has appended to it the Carmen de herbis attributed to Rufus, a paraphrase of an ornithological treatise by a certain Dionysius, usually identified with , and a paraphrase of Nicander's treatise on the treatment of snake bites.The manuscript was created in about 515 and was made for the Byzantine princess Juliana Anicia, the daughter of Emperor Anicius Olybrius. Although it was originally created as a luxury copy, there is some indication that in later centuries it was used daily as a hospital textbook. It includes some annotations in Arabic.

The Cupid-like putto offers an open codex and a prostrate female represents craftsmen who restored the church in Honorata on the beneficence of the princess.

  • Anicia Juliana (Constantinople, 462-527/528) was a Roman imperial princess, the daughter of the Western Roman Emperor Olybrius, of the Anicii, by Placidia the younger, daughter of Emperor Valentinian III and Licinia Eudoxia.

    Her glittering genealogy aside, Juliana is primarily remembered as one of the first non-reigning female patrons of art in recorded history. From what little we know about her personal predilections, it appears that she "directly intervened in determining the content, as well, perhaps, as the style" of the works she commissioned.Juliana's name is attached to the Vienna Dioscurides, also known as the Juliana Anicia Codex, one of the earliest and most lavish illuminated manuscripts still in existence. The frontispiece features her depiction, the first donor portrait in the history of manuscript illumination, flanked by the personifications of Magnanimity and Prudence, with an allegory of the "Gratitude of the Arts" prostrate in front of her. The encircling inscription proclaims Juliana as a great patron of art.

  • PhysallisPhysalis alkekengi: Physalis, or Winter-cherryThe Physalis plant grows in many parts of the world: in Europe, China, South America, South Africa, and in the United States. Often called the Winter-cherry or Chinese Lanterns, physalis was used as a decorative and medicinal herb. Dioscorides prescribed its stem as a sedative and its berries as diuretics. Mixed with honey, Physalis was said to improve eyesight; with wine, it supposedly cured toothache.

  • Anthon to esthiomenon

  • KyklaminosCyclamen europaeum: Cyclamen, sowbreadThis herb gets its name (cyclamen means circle) from its bulblike, underground stem. Dioscorides suggested its use as a purgative, antitoxin, skin cleanser, and labor-inducer. When used as a purgative, juice from the tuberous root-stock was applied externally, either over the bowels and bladder region or on the anus. Dioscorides also mentioned its use as an aphrodisiac. Many English farmers called Cyclamen stag-truffle or sowbread since they often observed deer and swine digging up and eating the roots.

  • Apsynthion BathyprikonArtemisia absinthium: WormwoodNext to Rue, Wormwood is the bitterest herb. Dioscorides recommended it as a stomachic, a vermifuge, a remedy for jaundice, and a flavoring for absinthe. According to Dioscorides, absinthe was a popular summertime drink in Propontis and Thracia, where they believed it maintained good health. Dioscorides also recommended the use of Wormwood in clothes drawers to repel moths and mice.

  • Kentaureion to leptonErythraea centaurium: CentauryThe genus of this herb was originally named Chironia after Chiron, a centaur of Greek mythology who was famous for his knowledge of medicinal plants. According to legend, Chiron healed himself with this plant after accidentally wounding himself with one of Herculess poisoned arrows. Dioscorides alluded to the myth and prescribed Centaury as a treatment for wounds. He also recommended the herb for lung disorders, namely the old cough and blood spitting.

  • Panax Herakliosprobably Ferula galbaniflua: GalbanumThe genus of this plant (panax means universal remedy) suggests its wide use among the ancient Greeks. Dioscorides prescribed the milky juice of Galbanum for ulcers, coughs, convulsions, ruptures, headaches, stomach pains, menstrual cramps, toothaches, snakebites, and labor pains. Rubbed on the eyes as an ointment, it improved eyesight. And taken with honey, Galbanum was a sure remedy for indigestion and flatulence.

  • Pimpernel (: Scarlet pimpernel, : Anagallis arvensis) .

  • Rosa lutea: RoseThe beauty and fragrance of the rose secured its popularity in the ancient world. The Greeks associated the rose with Aphrodite, the Graces, and the Muses. Dioscorides recommended rose petal paste as an eye salve and suggested a decoction of rose petal dust in wine for headaches, earaches, and hemorrhoids. He also prescribed a rose hip decoction against hemoptysis.

  • Strychnos Megas KepaiosSolanum nigrum: Black NightshadeA relative of the notorious Atropa belladonna, or Deadly Nightshade, the Black, or Garden, Nightshade is potentially harmful, but its poison is relatively mild. Dioscorides recommended its leaves for treating skin diseases. He also suggested a decoction of the plants leaves for earaches, indigestion, and internal bleeding.

  • Drakontaia MikreArum maculatum: Arum, or Cuckoo-PintAncient physicians called this plant the Drakontaia Mikre, or small dragon, because the central stalk resembles a serpent. According to Dioscorides, its shape revealed its purpose as an antidote for snakebites. Rubbing ones hands with Arum root was supposed to make one unbiteable. Dioscorides also recommended the Arum root as an expectorant. The leaves, beaten small, were to be used on fresh wounds. - , , . , , , .

  • This illustration from Walters depicts thymelaea (spurge-laurel) (thumala, khamala). This is an illustrated manuscript of the Arabic version of De materia medica by Dioscorides, copied in the thirteenth CE in Iran. An Arabic translation of the manuscript was discovered in Istanbul in the 1560s by the Flemish diplomat Ogier Ghiselin de Busbecq who was in the employ of Emperor Ferdinand I. The Emperor bought the manuscript and it is now held in the sterreichische Nationalbibliothek in Vienna. The manuscript was inscribed on UNESCO's Memory of the World Programme Register in 1997 in recognition of its historical significance

  • Preparation of Medicine from Honey: Leaf from an Arabic translation of the Materia Medica of Dioscorides, dated 1224 Iraq, Baghdad School Colors and gold on paper

    Among the Greek scientific texts that appealed to the Arab translators and artists of Baghdad, a center for manuscript production in the thirteenth century, were herbals and bestiaries. They described the appearance, habitat, salient characteristics, and uses of various plants and animals, a tradition going back to late antiquity, but pictorially were more often influenced by the art of Byzantium. Particularly popular was the treatise of Dioscorides, a Greek physician working in the Roman army in Asia Minor during the first century A.D.Deep in thought, shaded by trees, a physician stirs his medicine. In the center, a mixture is brewing in a cauldron that hangs from a tripod and is heated by the fire below. To the left, a large jug perhaps held honey or oil.While some miniatures illustrating this scientific text on medicinal uses, principally of plants, rather closely follow their Byzantine prototypes, others, such as this example, reveal more of a human than scientific approach, as the doctor seems to ponder the formula he is mixing. The decorative trees help to contain as well as balance the composition. The lack of spatial depth combined with clarity of design, lively forms, and bold coloring are characteristic of this school of painting.

  • Illustrated manuscript of the Arabic version of De materia medica by Dioscorides, copied in the seventh century AH / thirteenth CE in Iran. Pedanius Dioscorides wrote his treatise on medicinal plants in the first century CE. It was translated into Syriac and then Arabic in Baghdad in the third century AH / ninth CE. De materia medica by Dioscorides was one of the earliest scientific manuscripts to be translated from Greek to Arabic.

  • Miniature from a copy of Kitab al-hashaish, a translation of Dioscoridess De Materia Medica. The Doctors OfficeIraq, Baghdad?; 1224 This miniature is a lovely example of the oldest preserved book painting from the Islamic world. It was made in Iraq by Abdallah ibn al-Fadl, who presumably was responsible for both copying and illustrating it. The style is an example of Arab painting, in which Byzantine and local Christian pictorial conventions were still found, for example in the use of haloes and the folds of garments.The manuscript contains a number of depictions of medicinal plants. The fact that there are also figurative depictions of more unnecessary scenes, such as this doctors office, has been considered by many to signify the birth of Islamic book painting.

    A Ferry Crossing the Gagos River Iraq, Baghdad?; 1224 Like another miniature, which shows a doctors office (4/1997), this is one of the both unnecessary and revolutionary illustrations in Abdallah ibn al-Fadls copy of Dioscoridess medical treatise.The text states that on the shores of the Gagos River, jet can be found that is effective against pain in the uterus, but the artist took the opportunity to depict an entire ferry with a helmsman, two rowers, and eight passengers, each looking out of a porthole. Despite the awkward rendition of the river landscape, the miniature is colorful and filled with finely observed and beautifully executed details.
