The following short quote from the 9th century on the subject of the biodiversity of mint
But if one has the powers and kinds and names of the mint /
could call them all and all, so he would have to also /
know how many fish swim in the Red Sea,
or how many sparks Vulcanus, the melting god from Lemnos, /
sends up into the air from the huge meals of the Aetna. ”
– Walahfrid Strabo : out Liber de cultura hortorum (short Hortulus )
