<<< Got my curiosity up... here is a citation for the herb


Daniel >>>


"It was familiar to the Arabian writers on medicine and is still a  
favourite remedy in the East, having long been an article of export  
from Algeria and Spain by way of Egypt to India."

An herb/spice that was imported from the West to the East, rather than  
the other direction. We've talked about some local spices before, such  
as mustard, but this is the first that I can remember being traded  
from the West to the East, except perhaps for saffron.

Anyone know of any others (herb or spice)?
