Table of Contents:
1 The Cochlearia coronopus. See B. xxii. c. 22.
2 The Anchusa tinctoria, probably, or dyers' alkanet. See B. xxii. c. 23.
3 See B. xxii. c. 26.
4 It has not been identified with any degree of certainty: the Centaurea nigra and the Campanula rapunculus have been named.
5 See B. xxvii. c. 21: also c. 52 of this Book. The name appears to have been given to both the Leontodon taraxacum and the Lathyrus aphaca of modern botany.
6 Theophrastus has Picris in the parallel passage, Hist. Plant. B. vii. c. 9, the Helminthia echioides of Linnæus. If "Crepis" is the correct reading, that plant has not been identified.
7 The herbaceous kinds are no doubt those alluded to.
