From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

    =Rie, (Heb. kussemeth), found in Ex. 9:32; Isa. 28:25, in all of
    which the margins of the Authorized and of the Revised Versions
    have "spelt." This Hebrew word also occurs in Ezek. 4:9, where
    the Authorized Version has "fitches' (q.v.) and the Revised
    Version "spelt." This, there can be no doubt, was the Triticum
    spelta, a species of hard, rough-grained wheat.
