Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The subst. θηρομαχία is found OGIS 533.48 (i/B.C.) θηρομαχίαν ἔδωκεν. For the verb, see Vett. Val. p. 129.33 ὁ τοιοῦτος ἐθηριομάχησεν, and similarly p. 130.21. A close parallel to the Pauline usage (1 Corinthians 15:32) occurs in Ignat. Romans 5:1-21 ἀπὸ Συρίας μέχρι Ῥώμης θηριομαχῶ. Though the verb used is different, we may compare the maiden’s lament in P Ryl I. 15.7 (ii/A.D.)—

κακοῖς

[θηρίοις νιν ] μονομαχήσειν ἀνέπεισαν.

";They have persuaded him to fight alone with evil beasts"; (Ed.).
