Gesenius' Hebrew and Chaldee Definition

בַּהַט Esther 1:6, a kind of marble of which pavements were made. LXX., Vulg. σμαραγδίτης, smaragdites. Arab. بَهْتُ according to the Kamûs, page 176, is a species of stone; and from the etymology, it may be gathered that a spurious marble is intended, so called because it falsely puts on the appearance of marble: [“or else white marble”].
