Thayer's Expanded Definition

κόμη, κόμης, (from Homer down), hair, head of hair: 1 Corinthians 11:15. (According to Schmidt (21, 2) it differs from θρίξ (the anatomical or physical term) by designating the hair as an ornament (the notion of length being only secondary and suggested). Cf. B. D. under the word .)
