Vocabulary of the Greek NT

We have been no more fortunate than our predecessors in tracing earlier appearances of this ἅπ . εἰρ . of Acts 23:23. It may be a coinage to translate some title used in the Roman army; but obviously it was coined before Luke’s time, as its meaning could not be deduced from its form. Preuschen (HZNT in loc.) quotes from Matthaei a scholion which is not in Grimm : δεξιολάβοι λέγονται οἱ παραφύλακες .
