Whole entry missing in B ef


Alkelilgebel, see below under rosmarinum q.v.


Siggel (1950): ﺍﻜﻠﻳﻞ ﺍﻟﻣﻟﻙ /iklīl al-ğabal/ {lit. "crown of the mountain"} Rosmarinus officinalis (Lab.) Rosmarin {i.e. "rosemary"}.

Cf. Portuguese: alecrim "rosemary" < ﺍﻻﻛﻠﻴﻞ /al-iklīl/.

Alkelilgebel (1) and (2) as entries in their own right only occur in witnesses C and A, of which A is little more than a copy of C. It seems that the two entries were only added by some scribes later independently and without them being aware of the other’s entry since both entries say basically the same.
