yeuse

Ilicis duo genera. ex his in Italia folio non ita multum ab oleis distant milaces a quibusdam Graecis dictae; in provinciis aquifoliae sunt ilices. glans utriusque brevior et gracilior, quam Homerus aculon appellat eoque nomine a glande distinguit. ilices negant ferre.

There are two classes of holm-oak. The Italian variety, called by some Greeks milax, has a leaf not very different from that of the olive, but the holmoak in the provinces is the one with pointed leaves. The acorn of both kinds is shorter and more slender than that of other varieties; [Homer Od. xi. 242] calls it akylon and distinguishes it by that name from the common acorn. It is said that the male holm-oak bears no acorns.

Holm

Quercus ilex, the Holm Oak or Holly Oak is a large evergreen oak native to the Mediterranean region. It takes its name from holm, an ancient name for holly. It is known by the names azinheira in Portuguese, encina in Spanish, carrasca or alzina in Catalan, is-siġra tal-ballut in Maltese and chêne vert or yeuse in French. It is a member of the white oak section of the genus, with acorns that mature in a single summer.
