Seed ID

These seeds are from an old trade. The name was written on a clear plastic baggie but rubbed off.
(5 seeds) so this would indicate not your common seeds.
They look like small, round, flat black or dk. brown beans.
I know expecting an ID is probably stretching, but your best guess would be appreciated.
I'm going to plant them in a pot today.

My daughter thinks it has a v word and a c word and fragrant.
Probably 'Vigna caracalla'.
