Leccio – Quercus ilex – Fagaceae family Holm or Holly oak
"... and rivers of milk, rivers of nectar flowed, and blond honey dripped from the green holm oak ..." Ovidio - The Metamorphoses
Il Leccio is an evergreen plant whose leaves fall every two years; it can reach 25-30 meters in height, has a shrubby habit when young and arboreal when gets older. Its fruit is the acorn.
In ancient times it was a tree consecrated to the gods, in particular to Era. In archaic Rome it was believed to be an oracular tree, as it attracted lightning. In a forest of holm oaks lived the nymph Egeria, the inspirer of King Numa.
