ETYMOLOGY / ANTIQUITY

OATS :The history of oats is somewhat clouded because there are so many different species and subspecies, which makes identification very difficult.

AGAVE : American aloe plant, 1797, from Latin Agave, from Greek Agaue, proper name in mythology (mother of Pentheus), from agauos "noble," perhaps from agasthai "wonder at," from gaiein "to rejoice, exult".

In Greek mythology, according to the Theban stories, Agave was the mother of Pentheus and the daughter of Cadmus and Harmonia. She denied that Dionysus (her niece and the son of Semele, sister of Agave) was the son of Zeus and so was punished, along with her sisters, by being turned into a frenzied maenad. In her frenzy, Agave thought her son Pentheus was a wild beast. She tore her own son apart. The Greek tragedy known as The Bacchae or TheBacchantes, by Euripides, tells the story of Agave, Dionysus, and Pentheus.

Agave has been cultivated for centuries, first by the Native American population and then in Europe, when agave plants were brought back by the Spaniards and Portugese, in the 17th century.
Each agave rosette grows slowly and flowers only once. When the agave is ready to flower, a tall stem grows from the center of the leaf rosette and produces a large number of short tubular flowers. After the development of the fruit, the original plant dies, but shoots are frequently produced from the base of the stem which becomes new plants.

The Aztecs, used agave syrup, to treat wounds because of its antibacterial properties.
