GREEK LOTUS (PERSIMMON): In dried form from 4G
Lotus seems to have been known to the ancient Indians, from whom he first spread to Tibet and China and later to Egypt and ancient Greece. Ancient Greeks called many species of plants, herbaceous and tree-like, which, according to Theophrastus, did not relate to the real lotus. According to Dioscorides four species of lotus are mentioned, only one species corresponds to the plant genus. So the first species of Dioscuriides, the “lotus the day”, corresponds to the lotus the keratiphoros, which sprouted around Sparta and Troy as Homer (Iliad B-776), which was a kind of clover with which they fed the horses.
The second species of Dioskourides, the “lotus the savage”, is the same as that cultivated in Egypt, the alfalfa clover the Alexandrian. The “lotus the tree” is the “lotus the cyranus, which grows in Africa and Greece, the fruit of which was fed, as Homer mentioned by the lotus-eaters and the Arabs considered it the fruit of Paradise.
Finally, the “lotus Egyptian” is none other than the so-called “nymphaeus” or “lotus of Nymphaeus”, which is the Egyptian and Indian lotus itself, a symbol of fertility and euphoria.
