NOTE: In a posting on this website Jens Bilgrav suggested as follows:
“F4r, which on Ellie Velinski’s website has been identified by a Steve D as illustrating flax, has as the first word what you would read as: k-a-t-u-?-?-n. I hasten to point out that the Arabic for ‘flax’ is ‘kattãn’ (long a).”
The anonymous Finnish biologist also suggested flax.
