Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The marginal rendering of the word in the RV ";fallen from heaven"; rather than ";from Jupiter"; is supported by Field (Notes, p. 130), who cites Dion. Hal. Ant. ii. 71 ἐν δὲ ταῖς πέλταις ἃς οἱ Σάλιοι φοροῦσι, πολλαῖς πάνυ οὔσαις, μίαν εἶναι λεγουσι διοπετῆ (afterwards explained by θεόπεμπτον). Of course the two amount to the same thing, since Zeus is the primeval sky-god : see A. B. Cook’s great monograph, Zeus.
