Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For this word in a good sense we may cite Demetr. de Elocut. 177 (ed. Roberts) ἡ γὰρ Ἀττικὴ γλῶσσα συνεστραμμένον τι ἔχει καὶ δημοτικὸν καὶ ταῖς τοιαύταις εὐτραπελίαις πρέπον, ";the Attic dialect has about it something terse, and popular, and so lends itself naturally to the pleasantries of the stage"; : cf. the adj. ib. 172 ἡ γὰρ ἀντίθεσις εὐτράπελος, ";there being wit in a play on words."; The simplex *τράπελος is not found, but is vouched for by the Lat. torculus also = ";turning,"; but applied in a different way : see Brugmann-Thumb, p. 231.
