The Germans, having regard to its shape, which is like that of the horse-bean, and to the place whence it comes, denominate it Sea-bean, for it is found among shells on the sea-shore.

UVA QUERCINA
Rulandus: A Substance of much importance, yet unknown to the ancients. It is a certain concretion, in the form of a bunch of grapes, which forms in spring under the earth at the roots of oak-trees, originating perchance from a superfluous moisture of the roots. It has a stiptic taste, is outwardly of purple colour, but is white inwardly, and, as it were, milky. In the winter it becomes wood; it should be collected in spring, dried in the shade, and then pulverised. The powder is most efficacious in dysentery; the most desperate cases have I cured with one of these Uva.
