Theophrastus, a follower of Plato and Aristotle, called it the "pipeli" long pepper in the third century BC in his botanical treaty "Enquiry into Plants". In this book, the Greek philosopher listed plants from Asia that then became known after Alexander’s conquests. He makes a difference between long pepper (Piper longum) and round pepper (Piper nigrum). Well before Carl Von Liné, he devised a botanical classification of plants.
