4807 sykáminos – a sycamine tree, most likely the black mulberry tree, known for its medicinal properties – hence, distinguished by Luke the physician (see WP at Lk 17:6).

[4807 (sykáminos) then seems to be a distinct species from 4809 (sykomōraía).]

4807 /sykáminos ("mulberry tree") is deciduous, yields black berries, and grows about six meters high (roughly 20 feet).

[Neither the 4809/sykomōraía nor the 4807/sykáminos are the same as the English "sycamore tree."]
