Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For the use of this word in Acts 16:16 in the sense of ";ventriloquist,"; commentators generally appeal to Plut. de defectu Oraculorum 9 τοὺς ἐγγαστριμύθους. . νῦν. . πύθωνας προσαγορευομένους, the utterance being traced to the presence of a ";familiar spirit"; (πύθων) in the body of the speaker : cf. LXX Leviticus 19:31; 1Ki. 28:7 [MT 1 Samuel 28:7] al. Along with this the girl is described as having a certain prophetic power, μαντευομένη : cf. Suidas, πύθων · δαιμόνιον μαντικόν, and Knowling’s note EGT ad Ac l.c.
