The history of fennel

Fennel was well known to the Ancients and was cultivated by the ancient Romans for its aromatic fruits and succulent, edible shoots. Pliny had much faith in its medicinal properties, according no less than twenty-two remedies to it, observing also that serpents eat it when they cast their old skins, and they sharpen their sight with the juice by rubbing against the plant.

The role of fennel in religious manifestations is assimilated to a meaning of rebirth and spirit regeneration.
