Table of Contents:
1 Similar to our pearl barley, probably.
2 "Anguli." Dalechamps interprets this as two rows of grain; but Fée thinks that it signifies angles, and points. The Polygonum fagopyrum of Linnæus, he says, buck-wheat, or black-wheat, has an angular grain, but he doubts whether that can possibly be the grain here alluded to.
3 There is no barley without a beard; it is clearly a variety of wheat that is alluded to.
4 Triticum spelta of Linnæus.
