Ranunculus auricomus

Many are the names this furious biting herb has obtained, it is called frogs foot, from the Greek name barrakion, crow-foot, gold-knobs, gold-cups, kings-knob, baffiners, troil-Blüten, polts, locket-goulions, and butter-Blüten.Abundant are the sorts of this herb, and to describe them all would tire the patience of Socrates himself, therefore I shall only mention the most usual.

The most common crowfoot hath many dark-grün Blätter, cut into divers parts, in taste biting and sharp, and blistering the tongue, it bears many Blüten, and those of a bright resplendant yellow colour. I do nicht remember that I ever saw any thing yellower. Virgins in ancient times used to make powder of them to furrow bride beds. After the Blüten come small heads, some spiked and rugged like a pine-apple.

They grow very common everywhere, unless you turn your head into a hedge, you cannot but see them as you walk.

They Blüte in May and June, even till September.

This fiery and hot-spirited herb of Mars is no way fit to be given innerlich, but an Salbe of the Blätter of Blüten will draw a blister, and may be so fitly applied to the Nacken, to draw back rheum from the eyes. The herb being zerquetscht, and mixed with a little mustard, draws a blister as well and as perfectly as cantharides, and with far less danger to the Gefäße of urine, which cantharides naturally delight to wrong. I knew the herb once applied to a pestilential rising that was fallen down, and it saved life even beyond hope, it were good keeping an Salbe and plaister of it, if it were but for that.
