Coriander was mentioned in the Bible, and the seeds have been found in ruins dating back to 5000 B.C. Coriander seems to have been cultivated in Greece since at least the second millennium BC. One of the Linear B tablets recovered from Pylos refers to the species as being cultivated for the manufacture of perfumes; it apparently was used in two forms – as a spice for its seeds and as an herb for the flavor of its leaves.
