Combination of two generic names LOTUS (q.v.) + ONONIS. onos, = an ass; something useful. “In the 4th century B.C., Theophrastus** produced the first botanical description of restharrow. In the first century A.D., Dioscorides and Pliny described the use of the plant as a remedy for urinary complaints and stones. In the later writings of Roman antiquity, Galen referred to the effect of ononis on increasing urine flow and decreasing the size of urinary stones. Lonicerus wrote: “This herb is the most excellent of stone-herbs which flushes out the stone and urine in man and animals, which is why it is also called stone-root.” (http://www.avogel.ch/en/plant-encyclopaedia/ononis_spinosa.php)
