Din dicționarul Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary :

  Cinnamon
     Heb. kinamon, the Cinnamomum zeylanicum of botanists, a tree of
     the Laurel family, which grows only in India on the Malabar
     coast, in Ceylon, and China. There is no trace of it in Egypt,
     and it was unknown in Syria. The inner rind when dried and
     rolled into cylinders forms the cinnamon of commerce. The fruit
     and coarser pieces of bark when boiled yield a fragrant oil. It
     was one of the principal ingredients in the holy anointing oil
     (Ex. 30:23). It is mentioned elsewhere only in Prov. 7:17; Cant.
     4:14; Rev. 18:13. The mention of it indicates a very early and
     extensive commerce carried on between Palestine and the East.
