Thayer's Expanded Definition

κατατομή, κατατομης, (from κατατέμνω (cf. κατά, III. 4) to cut up, mutilate), mutilation (Latinconcisio): Philippians 3:2, where Paul sarcastically alludes to the word περιτομή which follows in Philippians 3:3; as though he would say, Keep your eye on that boasted circumcision, or to call it by its true name 'concision' or 'mutilation.' Cf. the similar passage, Galatians 5:12; see ἀποκόπτω.
