Kebikegi is the Arabic term in Avicenna for what is in Dyascorides botrachion; it is also called {in Latin} apium raninum with its different kinds, of which there are four according to Dyascorides. See the entry Botrachion above.


Siggel (1950: 62): ﻛﺑﻴﻜﺦ /kabīkağ/ e. Ranunculus asiaticus u.a. {i.e. "Persian Buttercup" and others}.
The word is a loan from Persian, cf. Steingass (1892: 1013), ﻛﺑﻴﻜﺦ /kabīkağ/ "a kind of wild parsley and a deadly poison".

Simon alludes to Avicenna's Canon [Goehl], liber secundus, capitulum 378 (377). De kebikengi {followed by: id est ranunculo}. This text is also available online, p. 100: De kebikengi. Ca. xxxlxxviii. [[1]].
The Arabic original text can be found p. 192: ﻛﺑﻴﻜﺦ /kabīkağ [[2]].
