thı̄´in ( ξύλον θύΐνον , xúlon thúinon ): An aromatic wood described as sold in "Babylon" ( Revelation 18:12 , the King James Version margin "sweet wood"). It is the wood of the thya (θυΐ́α , thuı́a ) tree, probably identical with Thuia articulata an evergreen tree growing in North Africa, resembling the cypress, which in Roman times was employed for making valuable furniture.
