Fine Art Print - Apollinaris by Jessica Shaw

'Herba Apollinaris' or Apollo's herb, associated here to the Golden Henbane, holds a significant place in ancient Greco-Roman mythology and religious practices.
Referred to in various ancient texts, including the works of Pliny the Elder and Dioscorides, the Herba Apollinaris is associated to Apollo, the Greek God of Prophecy, Healing, and the Arts, and to his Priestesses who used it to yield oracles in his temple in Delphi. Its inclusion in religious ceremonies and healing practices highlights the interconnection between botanical knowledge, spirituality, and the divine in the ancient Mediterranean world.
