un´yunz ( בּצלים , becālı̄m ; κρόμμυον , krómmuon ): One of the delicacies of Egypt for which the children of Israel pined in the wilderness ( Numbers 11:5 ). The onion, alllium cepa (Natural Order Liliaceae ), is known in Arabic as buṣal and is cultivated all over Syria and Egypt; it appears to be as much a favorite in the Orient today as ever.
