Avicennia is named after Ibn Sina (980-1037 AD), a Persian physician-philosopher who gained fame by curing, at the tender age of 17, the King of Bukhhara of an ailment that other physicians were unable to treat. As a reward, he asked only for permission to use the King's library. Ibn Sina went on to write an immense encyclopaedia of the medical knowledge of his time, which remained in use for the next six centuries. The encyclopaedia included his own insights into the causes and spread of diseases and their treatment including tuberculosis, meningitis (he was the first to describe it), gynaecological and diseases of childhood. He also wrote an encyclopaedia of other scientific and philosophical knowledge covering physics, mathematics, economics and politics. In this, he also added his own insights into among others, the laws of physics, astronomical measurements and mathematical verifications.
