Anise

ANISE (ἄνηθον, G464, Matt 23:23). Some think the plant is Pimpinella anisum, an aniseed-flavored herb. The Gr. word anēthon, however, undoubtedly makes it dill (Anethum graveolins) See [[Dill]]. The liquid made from the leaves soothes babies. It grows wild in Israel. Its seeds and dried leaves were subject to tithe.
