Origins: The particular appearance and poisonousness of its flowers inspired myths and legends, which point to the aconite as the flower that personifies the revenge and the guilty love. The Greek mythology recounts that Cerberus, the three heads dog of Hecate, the queen of the underworld, had in his dribble aconite seeds. When Hercules carried the beast, foaming at the mouth, away from the underworld to the earth, on the way the seeds were spread on the ground; this way the seeds of the aconite arrived to our world. Norwegian tradition says that the flower was the symbol, because of its shape, of the helmet of Odin, the most valiant of Teutonic gods. This unique head covering gave to everyone who wore it the magic power of becoming invisible to human beings. Christian religion likens it to the monks cowl. In France it is popularly called the Venus cart. We are also told that it was born from the teeth of the dog of Echidna. There is a cavern with a dark mouth; there is a precipitous path, the hero of “Tirins dragged Cerberus along, tied with twisted chains of hard metal, resisting and rolling his eyes as he hated the bright light of the sun; trembling with rage, the infernal dog filled the air with the sinister barks of his three throats and sprinkled the verdant fields with his white foams; we are told that they condensed in the shape of seeds and they gained an evil power drawing nourishment from the fertile and rich soil; and as they grow luxuriantly among hard rocks, the peasants call them aconites.” Ovid Metamorphosis VII, 409-419.
