Greek neokoros . "Temple keeper "; originally an attendant in charge of a temple. Then applied to cities devoted to the worship of some special idol, as Ephesus was to that of Diana (Acts 19:35), In Nero's reign about the same date, A.D. 55 or 56, a coin is extant inscribed with Neocoron Ephesion, and on the reverse Diana's temple (Mionnet Inset. 3:9; Eckhel Doctr. Vet. Num. 2:520. (See RELIGION.) Ancient representations strikingly confirm the picture which Isaiah gives us in chapter 44 of the man who "hath formed a god, ... he marketh it out with a line ... after the figure of a man ... he taketh the cypress and the oak ... he maketh a god and worshippeth it; he maketh it a graven image" (Isaiah 44:10-15).
