Abstract

The potent physiological activity of plants belonging to the Cucurbitaceae family has been known since antiquity. They were feared on account of their high toxicity (Elisha’s Miracle)*, and vet valued because of the medicinal properties ascribed to them (40). Greeks and Romans used them, the doctors of the Middle Ages praised their virtues and some were still described in the British Pharmacopoeia of 1914.
