Olea europaea
(Olive tree). De Materia Medica, 1554. Pedanius Dioscorides.  

Written between 50
and 70 AD by Dioscorides, a Greek physician in the Roman army.  It was widely read for more than 1,500 years,
until supplanted by revised herbals in the Renaissance, making it one of the
longest lasting of all medical books.
