Probably ἄνησον refers to the common 'dill,' which is different from the ἄνισον the 'anise.' Both the plant and seed were and still are used as a condiment in the east, and are found in the modern materia medica. The Pharisees were careful to pay tithes of such things while they omitted the weightier matters of the law, Matthew 23:23 .
