Chap. XLIV. Of Wild Barley.
inp#E Names. It is called in Greek, Καθ»**^ X In Latin, Hordeu/n agrefte: In Englifi, Wild Barley.
Π. The Kinds. There are several Kinds thereof, 1. ZU^ZeiftMorixoxxof, and by Lobel, Bryza Mono-coccus-, Wild or Brant Barley, Peters Corn. 2. Αφ'λ«4» JEgMops, Eefiuca-, Degenerate Barley, or haverGrass. 3. Kerid ri9ii Όλχ3* (^τΐε/οα/κ, λ tra-hendo,qubd ariftas e corpore trahat)': Hordeumfpuri* um, murinum, vel fpontaneum, Rifiida ·, Way Barley, Wall Barley, which last is also said to be greater and lejfer.
ιΠ. The Descriptions. Zea, or Bryza, has a small Fibrous or Stringy Root, from whence rises up fiender and short Stalks, but firm, bearing a small, thin Spiked Ear, set with Grains or Corn in two rows, one Corn on each side oppofite to the other, from the bottom of the Ear to the top, whereby the Ear is flat, like unto Barley,«;i/& rough Awnes or a Beard, as Barley also has-, every Grain is containedfingly in a husk, voich jlicks to it,fo as not easily to begotten off-, the Ear-much refembles Barley, and the Colour of the Grain, is a dark Red: it makes blackish or dark brown Bread, andnot altogether J0pleasant as our Common Barley.
IV. jEgUops, (which in my opinion ought rather to be called MonoccocusJ has a Root which from a fmalt Head fends forth many Fibres or Strings, from whence springs forth Stalks 2. or 3* handfuls high,
refembhng Wheat or Barley, Jointed in three or fiu places, from whence comesforth divers Grass Leaves, of a pale green colour, and at the top of the Stalks two or three Heads, set one above another, vihich are round and fomwhat long, hard and ftriped, having also many Beards at the end of each, wherein, when they are ripe and look whitish, lye 2. or 3. small Grains or Seeds a little smaller (says Gerard) than Barley .-thefe Seeds are wrapped or infolded in aCrefiedFilm or Skin, out of which the Awnes comeforth^ Matthiolus says, that as Lolium, or Common Darnel is known to be a Seed degenerate from Wheat, being found for the most part among Wheat: So by his own experimental knowledg, he had found that this iEgi-lops or Festuca, was a Seed or Grain, degenerating from Barley, and is found among Barley, or where Barley has grown.
V. The greater Way Barley, or Wall Barley, has a Fibrous or Thready Root, continuing many Tears, from whence springs up many Graffy Leaves,and among them several Benty Stalks about 16. ot 18. Inches high, at the top of which grows several whitish yellowish Ears, with somewhat rough Beards, but much shorter than those of Barley,and[fome have Jcarcely any Beards at all. The Ear is much more like that of Rye than Barley, and the Corn, or Grains which come out of it are brown Coloured, lank and small, in Color and fhape resembling Rye, fo that it might more properly be called Wild-Rye, Way-Rye, or Rye-Grass, rather than by any Appellation of Barley, to which in my opinion it has no refemblance.
VI. The lesser Way or Wall Barley, k like the other in its Roots, Leaves, Stalks, Ears and Grains^ so that many have taken it to be the same with the former, but in this it differs, that it is much lower, so that it scarcely attains to be a Foot high 5 and indeed it comesfo near to the former Barley, or rather Rye-Grass, that, many have taken it to be one and the same, as even I my self also do.
VII. The Places. The first was anciently sown in Greece, and the Eastern Countries ·, now it is Sown in some parts of Germany and France, but with us
