This article suggests interpreting the word ùzb in the recently published Ugaritic incantation RS 92.2014 as "Syrian hyssop" (Origanum syriacum or Marjorana syriaca). The arguments advanced include epigraphic, etymological, and literary factors, as well as contextual analogies drawn from the mechanics of Ugaritian magic in theory and practice.
