Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For this NT ἅπ. εἰρ. (Luke 1:9) see OGIS 352.37 (ii/B.C.) καὶ σ [τε ]φα [νοῦν τὸ ἄγαλμα τὸ τοῦ βασιλέως ] καὶ θυμιᾶν κ [αὶ ] δᾶιδα ἱστάνειν. Hobart (p. 90 f.) has shown that the verb, which survives in MGr as θυμιάζω, was the medical term for fumigating with herbs, spices, etc.
