Translation:

Stephanus writes Arabic rasenigi for Latin feniculum {"fennel"}, which is really razienigi in Arabic, and in other places he writes rasianegum.


Commentary:

Rasenigi:
Siggel (1950: 37): ﺭﺍﺯﻳﺎﻧﺞ /rāziyānağ/ Foeniculum vulgare (Umb.), Fenchel {i.e. "fennel"}.

Stephanus in his Breviarium writes maratron … rasianegũ [[1].]
N.b. Greek μάραθον /márathon/, also μάραθρον /márathron/, means "fennel" (LSJ).
