During the Renaissance, aristocrats tested the speed and agility of their greyhounds in a sport called "hare coursing."
Pharmacy bottles that lined the shelves of Renaissance pharmacies often held medicinal herbs, spices, and ointments. The inscription on this bottle reads SCABIOS, or “scabious water,” which may refer to a teasel root compound that was used to clean and decontaminate velvet.
