Vocabulary of the Greek NT

This vernacular word (cf. Kennedy Sources, p. 40) is found in the NT only in John 11:44. The form κηρία, which is read in this passage by ΑΧΔΛ a., occurs several times in the fragments of a medical papyrus, P Lond 155 (i/ii A.D.) (= II. p. xiv.), edited by Kalbfleisch ad Scholas (Rostock,1892), p. 5ii. 24 al.. Field (Notes, p. 96) quotes Moschopulus’ definition : κειρία · ὁ τῶν νηπίων δεσμός, ἤγουν ἡ κοινῶς φασκία (fascia), καὶ η δεσμοῦσι τοὺς νεκρούς.
