The above title is from Philemon Holland's translation of Pliny's Natural History, in 1G01. But cork had uses long before then. Latin scholars may remember that Suber is translated as cork and is mentioned in Virgil, whilst Hippocrates, who lived more than 400 years B.C. is also reported to have stated that cork was a material for floats.
