Vocabulary of the Greek NT

This late word = ";bed-chamber,"; which is condemned by Phrynichus (ed. Lobeck, p. 252), may be illustrated from P Tebt I. 120.14 (B.C. 97 or 64) ἐν τῶι κοιτῶ (νι), P Oxy I. 76.20 (A.D. 179) συμπόσιον καὶ κοιτῶνα, ib. III. 471.73 (ii/A.D.) ἐκ τ [οῦ ] κοιτῶνος ἐξιόντα τὸν παῖδα. This last papyrus shows also (.84) κοιτωνείτης, ";chamberlain"; : κοιτονικὴ μία, ";a bed-cover"; or ";mattress,"; is mentioned on an ostracon containing an inventory of clothing and furniture, Mél. Nicole p. 184, No. 10.2 (prob. Ptol.). In the inscrr. we frequently meet with ὁ ἐπὶ τοῦ κοιτῶνος = ";cubicularius,"; e.g. OGIS 256.5 (c. B.C. 130) ἐπὶ τοῦ κοιτῶνος τῆς βασιλίσσης (other exx. in Magie, p. 73) : cf. Acts 12:20.
