The "stuffed paunch of an ass" was a delicacy of ancient Athens.
Mortadella is the original bologna - a very large smoked sausage (usually pork) from Bologna, Italy, studded with cubes of pork fat, peppercorns and/or pistachios and/or green olives. American bologna (boloney) is a very poor imitation.
Mortadella probably dates back to the 15th century, and the original recipes included myrtle, 'mortella' in Italian, hence the name.
