  • "Among the strangest of Francesco Pegolotti's spices is momie, also known as mumia and informally in English as mummy."

    You can see where this is going.

    "The fundamental drug handbook known from its first (Latin) words as Circa instans (dating from 1166) defines mummy as 'a kind of spice collected from the tombs of the dead' -- but not just any dead people, only those whose bodies have been specially embalmed. Mummy, which was thought to be effective in stopping bleeding, was an exudation from the head and spine of the corpse resulting from decay combined with the spices used in the preservation process."

    "Indeed, Pegolotti notes that mummy should have a foul odor and a pitchlike consistency, or else it's inferior."

    Paul Freedman, Out of the East: Spices and the Medieval Imagination (New Haven and London: Yale UP, 2008), 13-14.

    Later in the same book... "The boundaries between wellness and luxury were nonexistent. ... Even mummy had a certain consumer cachet. Shakespeare's Othello, a Moor and so familiar with the East, possessed a handkerchief (in fact the fatal handkerchief given to Desdemona) 'dy'd in mummy.'"
