Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The manufacture of this famous material (τὰ βύσσινα , with or without ὀθόνια ) seems to have been a Government monopoly in Egypt, and it was carried on under the direction of the priests in the temples, which were hives of industry as well as of devotion. The output of these early ecclesiastics ranged from lawn to beer, as we see from P Eleph 27a.13 (B.C. 225–4) With the editor’s note and P Lond 1177.51 (A.D. 113) (= III. p. 182). See also for the linen monopoly Wilcken Ostr. i. p. 266 ff. and Dittenberger’s note to OGIS 90.17 (the Rosetta Stone—B.C. 196) τῶν τ᾽ εἰς τὸ βασιλικὸν συντελουμένων ἐν τοῖς ἱεροῖς βυσσίνων ὀθονίων ἀπέλυσεν τὰ δύο μέρη .
