CITRON (θύϊνος, G2591). Thyine wood in
The Citrum wood or Thyine wood was much used in Biblical days for cabinet making. The wood was so highly prized that Cicero had a table made which cost him $55,000.
The true Thyine wood comes from the Tetraclinis articulata, or the Sanderac tree—a conifer found in N Africa and on the Barbary Coast.
