Vocabulary of the Greek NT

To the reff. to this word in Grimm-Thayer we may add (from Hort James, p. 2) Joseph. Hypomnesticum (Fabricius Cod. Pseud. V.T. ii. p. 3) τοὺς δώδεκα φυλάρχους ἐξ ὧν τὸ δωδεκάφυλον τοῦ Ἰσραὴλ συνίσταται. For the formation cf. τὸ δωδεκάμηνον ";twelvemonth,"; common in papyri. We should not expect to find δωδεκάφυλον itself outside Jewish circles.
