Tongue, von Ebner's glands (historical image)
Salivary glands within the tongue are called von Ebner's glands (commemorating Anton Gilbert Victor von Ebner (d. 1925). These eponymous glands were described in Die acinösen Drüsen der Zunge und ihre Beziehungen zu den Geschmacksorganen: eine anatomische Untersuchung [The acinar glands of the tongue and their relations to the organs of taste: an anatomical study], University of Graz, 1873.
A circumvallate papilla is nicely illustrated near the upper center of this image, labelled α.
