Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The use in the Κοινή of the simplex, which is rare in prose as compared with the compound κατακαλύπτω, is traced by Nägeli (p. 27) to Ionic influence, see e.g. the Ionic inscr. of B.C. 420, Syll 877.6 ἐχφέρεν δὲ ἐγ κλίνηι σφ [ε ]νό [ποδι κ ]αὶ μὲ καλύπτεν. Other exx. of the verb from the inscrr. are Syll 438.145 (Delphi—c. B.C. 400) τὸν δὲ νεκρὸν κεκαλυμμένον φερέτω σιγᾶι, and ib. 939.10 μηδὲ (παρέρπην τὰς γυναῖκας) τὰς [τρί ]χας ἀμπεπλεγμένας μηδὲ (τοὺς ἄνδρας) κεκαλυμμένος. See also Aristeas 87 τῶν λειτουργούντων ἱερέων κεκαλυμμένων μέχρι τῶν σφυρῶν βυσσίνοις χιτῶσιν (ct. Exod 36.85), ";the ministering priests were clad in ‘ coats of fine linen’ reaching to the ankles"; (Thackeray).
