basil, and not as in 'bunting'

i learned something new today from our greek textbook that makes me feel like a dancing songmistress. i learned that the name of the herb 'basil' comes from the greek word 'basileus' ('king'). and you know what? i'm not too disappointed to learn that one of my favorites is king of the herb world.
