    In Athens during the Golden Age of the 5th century B.C., philosophers taught their fellow citizens the art of living, that is, how to live in harmony with an ever-expanding and sprawling city. In these open philosophical and mentoring sessions, they would often discuss ideas on how to resolve issues that plagued the common Athenian citizen or the society as a whole, but only after they dined on delights seasoned with spirit-warming aniseed and blissful fruits like the fig.

    Plato & Diogenis in AthensOnce upon a time in classical Athens, Plato saw the philosopher Diogenes the Cynic washing some cabbage leaves, and thought it was a great opportunity to mock his friend and his frugal dietary habits. “If you pledged allegiance to Dionysius, you wouldn’t need to eat cabbage leaves for dinner,” said Plato. Dionysius I of Syracuse was the tyrannical ruler of the city of Syracuse whom Plato unsuccessfully tried to convert to the ideals of his republic. The always quick-witted Diogenes retorted, “If you ate cabbage leaves, you wouldn’t need to serve Dionysius.”

    In Greek mythology, Persephone, the daughter of Demeter, the goddess of harvest and agriculture, was abducted by the god of the underworld, Hades. Demeter was searching for her daughter in the four corners of the known world, disguised as an old woman, and, enraged by the unfortunate turn of events, prevented the land of Attica from bearing fruits. When she reached Eleusis, she was graciously received by the local king, and, overwhelmed by the welcome, Demeter allowed the blooming of the fig tree while she also taught the locals how to plant it, nurture it, and reap its fruit. Thus, Athenians believed that the fig is a tree native to Attica.

    Greek doctors and pharmacologists in ancient Greece considered aniseed a very potent ingredient in their therapeutic practices. Aniseed was known for its expectorant, aphrodisiac, and aromatic properties, many of which are still perceived today. Threshed seeds of anise were the main ingredient of many a recipe in the ancient world, relieving ailments of the stomach, such as indigestion, as well as lung conditions.
