Lignum Arboris Sancti Patris Dominici / The wood from the tree of Holy Father Dominic
Explanation:
[...] "Lignum Arboris S.P. Dominici is literally "The wood from the tree of (our) Holy Father Dominic" [...]
[...] "The tree referred to is an organe tree planted in the cloisters of S. Sabina all'Aventino (the Dominican church in Rome, also the location of one of the oldest known crucifixion scene in the world)" [...]
[...]The orange tree pictured is said to be a direct descendant of the one planted in Rome by Our holy Father Dominic (Sanctus Pater Noster Dominicus = SPN etc) in 1220. Apparently this was the first of its type to be planted in Italy. The Villa Sciarra in Rome has an orange grove grown in commemoration of the bringing of the plant to Italy by St. Dominic". [...]
