Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The plural is used = ";garments"; generally, as in Mark 5:30, in the marriage contract P Ryl II. 154.8 (A.D. 66) ἱμα [τίω ]ν ̣ σ [τ ]ολὰ [ς ] δύο, λευκὴι μία [ναρ ]κ ̣[ι ]σ ̣σίνη μία, καὶ πάλλ [ι ]α πέντε, ";in raiment two robes, one white, one narcissus, and five mantles"; (Edd.) : cf. PSI I. 94.16 (ii/A.D.) μὴ ἀγωνία δὲ περὶ τῶν ἱματίων. In P Lille I. 6.9 (iii/B.C.) the ἱμάτιον is distinguished from the inner χιτών in the account of a robbery—ἐξέδυσαν χιτῶνα ἄξιον (δραχμὰς) ς ̄, ἱμάτιον τριβακὸν (";smooth,"; ";fine";) ἄξιον (δραχμὰς) ς ̄ : cf. P Par 59.4 (B.C 160) πέπρακα τὸ ὀθόνιον (δραχμῶν) φ ̄ καὶ τὸ εἱμάτιον (δραχμῶν) τ ̄π ̄. The weaving of the χιτώνιον and ἱμάτιον is mentioned in P Lond 429.38, .41 (c. A.D. 350) (= II. p. 315) ";probably a religious ceremony,"; according to the editor, ";like the weaving of the peplos at Athens."; Other exx. of the word are P Petr II. 32 (1).18 ἱμάτια Αἰγύπτια, P Fay 12.19 (c. B.C. 103) ἐξέδυσαν ὃ περ [ιε ]βεβλήμην ἱμάτιον, ";they stripped me of the garment I was wearing,"; ib. 109.5 (early i/A.D.) ἐάν σε δῃ (l. δέῃ) τὸ εἱμάτιόν σου θεῖναι ἐνέχυρον, ";even if you have to pawn your cloak"; (Edd.), and of the diminutive, P Par 10.22 (B.C. 145) ἱμάτιον καὶ ἱματίδιον παιδαρίου. In P Amh II. 76.14 (ii/iii A.D.) we hear of ἱματιοπώλης : cf. Preisigke 756 (ii/iii A.D.) . Εἱμάτιον. quoted twice above, is the (Ionic) diminutive of εἷμα : the Attic ι ̄̔μάτιον is due to itacism and perpetuates a vulgarism (Boisacq, p. 375).
