Derivation of the botanical name:
Lysimachia, named for Lysimachos (360 BCE – 281 BCE), King of Thrace , or more likely from the Greek Λυσίμαχος lysimachos, "ending strife," from lysis, "a loosening, releasing," and mache, strife, from whence came the English name of loosestrife.
nummularia: , resembling a coin, nummus, often applied to plants with small, almost circular leaves.
  • The standard author abbreviation L. is used to indicate Carl Linnaeus (1707 – 1778), a Swedish botanist, physician, and zoologist, the father of modern taxonomy.
