( Satureja thymbra L.)

Savory from Crete (thrumbi in Greek) has been used since antiquity for taste and therapeutic reasons. Dioscorides, Theophrastus and the Romans Pliny and Virgil refer to it. Its name comes from the ancient Greek city of Thymbra, which was located near ancient Troy.

In Antiquity, Pliny tells us that satyrs were often found in the meadows with the censer, hence the aphrodisiac property that the Romans attributed to it and its Latin name Satureja.
