A colour determined as representative of the flowers of the Aconite, Wolf’s-bane or Monkshood plant. Also known as the purple poison, the plant contains several poisonous compounds and it was used on spears and arrows for hunting and battle in ancient times.
During the ancient Roman period this toxic plant was often used to eliminate criminals and enemies and by the end of the period it was banned and anyone found growing Aconite could be sentenced to death.
