Vocabulary of the Greek NT

κῶμος, ";revel,"; revelling."; We are unable to illustrate this word, but reference may be made to the κωμασία, or sacred procession of the images of the gods in Egypt, as in P Tor I. Iviii. 21 (B.C. 116) προάγοντας τῆς κωμασίας, BGU I. 149.8 (ii/iii A.D.) ταῖς κωμασίαις τῶν θεῶν, P Par 69iv. 14 (A.D. 232) (= Chrest. I. 41) παρέτυχεν κωμασίᾳ ἐξ ἔθ [ους ἀγομέ ]νῃ Ἴσιδος θεᾶς μεγίστης, and OGIS 194.25 (B.C. 42) μετήλλαξε διηνεκῶς πο ]ηθῆναι τὰς τῶν κυρίων θεῶν κωμασίας. See further Sturzius Dial. Mac. p. 103 ff., and the classic passage in Clem. Al. Strom. V. vii. p. 354 f. (ed. Stählin). For κωμαστής cf. P Oxy X. 1265.9 (A.D. 336) κωμαστοῦ θίων προτομῶν καὶ νίκης αὐτῶν προαγούσης, ";celebrant of the divine images and their advancing victory"; (Edd.), with the accompanying note, and for κωμάζω see Deissmann BS p. 237.
