Vocabulary of the Greek NT

";a fig-mulberry"; (Luke 19:4), to be distinguished from συκάμινος (Luke 17:6), ";a mulberry."; Hobart (p. 152) thinks that the distinction may be due to Luke’s medical knowledge, seeing that both trees were used medicinally. For the spelling -έα for -αία, cf. Moulton Gr. ii. p. 81.
