The Hebrew shikmin, Syriac shekmo, and Arabic jummeez, is the (), or sycomore, of the Greeks, so called from () a fig-tree, and () a mulberry tree, because it resembles the latter in its leaves, and the former in its fruits. `The sycamore,' say Mr. Norded, `is of the height of a beech, and bears its fruit in a manner quite different from other trees: it has them on the trunk itself, which shoots out little sprigs, in form of grape stalks, at the end of which grow the fruit close to one another, almost like a cluster of grapes. The tree is always green, and bears fruit several times in the year, without observing any certain seasons; for I have seen some sycamores that have given fruit two months after others.
