Vocabulary of the Greek NT

κολοβόω, properly = ";amputate"; (Swete on Mark 13:20 : cf. 2 Kings 4:12). For a form κολοβίζω (not in LS8) of this late verb, cf. IMA iii. 323 (Thera i/B.C. or i/A.D.) τὰ πλείωι κεκολοβισμέ [νων ] καὶ ἀφιρημένων. The subst. κολόβιον, an under-vest with shortened sleeves, occurs in an inventory of property, P Tebt II. 406.17 (c. A.D. 266) κολόβιον λινοῦν δ [ ]σημον καινόν, ";a new linen shirt with two stripes"; (Edd.) al., and the adj. κολοβός, ";maimed,"; ";mutilated,"; in the description of an ass—μυόχρουν κολοβόν —in P Gen I. 23.5 (A.D. 70) al. : cf. P Petr III. 19 (g).2 (Ptol.), P Oxy I. 43 versov. 9 (iii/A.D.). The epithet ὁ κολοβοδάκτυλος, ";the stump-fingered,"; applied to Mark in iii/A.D. (Hippolytus Philos. vii. 30), has been traced to a desire on the part of the philosophers to ridicule the shortness of his Gospel, but is more probably due to some natural defect of the evangelist himself : see a curious note by Nestle, ZNTW iv. p. 347.
