ASPALATHUS ăs păl’ ə thəs (ἀσπάλαθος). An aromatic plant associated with cinnamon in Ecclesiasticus 24:15 KJV, ASV; RSV has “camel’s thorn.”


W. Walker, All the Plants of the Bible (1957), 24.

International Standard Bible Encyclopedia (1915)

An aromatic plant mentioned in Ecclesiasticus 24:15 the King James Version, where "wisdom" says, "I gave a sweet smell like cinnamon and aspalathus," etc. It would appear, from a reference in Pliny, to have been a prickly shrub, the wood of which was scented, but nothing certain is known about it.
