Thyine wood
        mentioned only in Rev. 18:12 among the articles which would
        cease to be purchased when Babylon fell. It was called citrus,
        citron wood, by the Romans. It was the Callitris quadrivalvis of
        botanists, of the cone-bearing order of trees, and of the
        cypress tribe of this order. The name of this wood is derived
        from the Greek word "thuein", "to sacrifice," and it was so
        called because it was burnt in sacrifices, on account of its
        fragrance. The wood of this tree was reckoned very valuable, and
        was used for making articles of furniture by the Greeks and
        Romans. Like the cedars of Lebanon, it is disappearing from the
        forests of Israel.
