Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For κοιλία (MGr κοιλιά) ";belly,"; ";abdomen,"; it is sufficient to cite P Magd 33.4 (B.C. 221) κατέκαυσεν τήν τε κοιλίαν καὶ τὸν ἀριστερὸν μηρόν, P Leid Uii. 16 (ii/B.C.) (= I. p. 124) πεσόντα ἐπὶ κοιλίαν, P Par 18 bis.18 (Rom.) ἐπιγεγραμμένον ἐπὶ τῆς κοιλίας τὸ ὄνομα αὐτῆς —of a dead body, P Ryl II. 63.8 (astrological—iii/A.D.) Λέοντος κοιλία, and from the inscrr. Syll803.38 (iii/B.C.) ἀνὴρ ἐ [ντὸ ]ς τᾶς κοιλίας ἕλκος ἔχων. For the usage in Philippians 3:19 it is customary to quote Eupolis Κόλακ. Fr. 172 (Kock I.) κοιλιοδαίμων, ";a devotee of the belly,"; and for the deeper, inner sense, which the word has in John 7:38, see the passages from the LXX cited in Grimm-Thayer. An interesting ex. of κοίλωμα = ";hollow,"; as in the LXX, occurs in P Petr II. 13 (18a).13 (B.C. 258–3) where preparations are made—ι ̣̓́ν ̣α ̣ ἀναχωσθῆι καὶ ὁμαλισθῇ τὰ κοιλώμα [τα ] πρὸ [τοῦ ] τὸν βασιλέα παραγενέσθαι, ";that the excavation may be filled up and levelled before the king arrives"; ( Ed. ) : cf. Luke 3:5.
