Vocabulary of the Greek NT

Syll 6159 (iii/A.D.) ἀμνὸς λευκὸς ἐνόρχης. Herwerden (s.v. ἀρήν) quotes an inscription from Cos 408, ἀμνὰν καὶ ἀμνόν. The noun (etymologically identical with Lat. agnus, our yean) is only four times found in NT, always with the sacrificial connotation which is abundant in LXX. See under ἀρήν.
