... bonae sub regno Cinarae. desine, dulcium ...

In fact, nothing to do with artichokes. Cinara is a woman's name.

Although it may be a woman's name, they are often symbolic of the context in which the woman appears. Cinara seems appropriate to a sympotic/erotic context based upon a fragment of Alcaeus, according to Thomas 2011, citing Davis.
