Dioscorides’s bruonia melaina is Bryonia alba, not Tamus communis, and an Illustration labeled bruonia melaina in the Codex Vindobonensis is Humulus lupulus not Bryonia dioica National Institute of Agronomic Research
Renner, S.S.; Scarborough, J.; Schaefer, H.; Paris, H.S.; Janick, J..
The Cucurbitaceae genus Bryonia contains ten species that are distributed throughout the Mediterranean to North Africa and from central Europe to Kazakhstan. References to the medicinal uses of species of Bryonia span two millennia, including two passages in Dioscorides’s De Materia Medica, written in about 65 CE. An illustrated copy of this text, known as the Codex Vindobonensis and dated 512 CE, is enriched with illustrations, including two labeled as bruōnia or bryonia. Here we argue that while Dioscorides’s text clearly concerns the blackfruited B. alba and a red-fruited species, perhaps B. cretica or B. dioica, only one of the plates in the Codex shows a species of Bryonia, while the other shows Humulus lupulus.

Reflections on linguistics as an aid to taxonomical identification of ancient Mediterranean cucurbits: the Piqqus of the Faqqous National Institute of Agronomic Research
Paris, H.S.; Janick, J..
There are a number of Mediterranean epithets for cucurbits that have intriguing connections in various ancient and modern languages. The most ancient and basic utterance is of Sumerian origin and includes a velar consonant (q, k) with a sibilant (s, sh, z). It is expressed in the Akkadian and Hebrew qishu and the Greek sikyos. The velar consonant without the sibilant is found in the Arabic qatta and doubled in the Greek kolokynthus and Latin cucumis and cucurbita. These and other possible linguistic implications and connections are considered with regard to cucurbit taxa of the ancient Mediterranean: Cucumis melo, Lagenaria siceraria, Citrullus lanatus, Citrullus colocynthis, and Ecballium elaterium.
