I find the bit about rebus' interesting:

Latin alchemists

such as Constantine of Pisa and Richardus Anglicus attempted to decipher

the word, apparently a transliteration of a still-unknown Arabic term.

Richardus interpreted ‘‘rebis’’ as an abbreviation for ‘‘res bina,’’ or ‘‘two

thing,’’ which he identified with the philosophers’ stone, and which many

subsequent alchemists understood as a hermaphrodite.

So we still don't know where the word comes from?  Someone do some research, quick!
