Vocabulary of the Greek NT

κόπτω in its original sense of ";cut"; may be illustrated by PSI II. 171.39 (ii/B.C.) κόψας τοὺς ἐν αὐτῶι φ [οίνι ]κ ̣ας, P Tebt I. 5.205 (B.C. 118) τοὺς κεκοφότας τῶν ἰδίων ξύλα, ";those who have cut down wood on their own property"; (Edd.), P Ryl II. 228.12 (i/A.D.) ὂργανο (ν) τροχ (οῦ) το ̣, εἰς κόπτειν, ";machinery of the wheel for cutting"; (Edd.), ib. 236.24 (A.D. 256) ποίησον δὲ ἐξαυτῆς ὤμους δύο ἐλαιουργικοὺς κοπῆναι, ";have two beams (?) cut at once for oil-presses"; (Edd ), P Oxy XII. 1421.4 (iii/A.D.) τὸ ξ [ ]λον τὸ ἀκάνθινον τὸ κεκομμένον ἐν τῇ Εἰόνθει, ";the acacia-wood which has been cut at Ionthis."; For the simplex κόπτω as an equivalent of the immediately preceding compd. ἐκκόπτω, see P Fay 114.14 ff. (A.D. 100) θέλι ἐξ αὐτον ἐκκόψαι φυτά, εἵνα ἐνπίρος κοπῇ τὰ μέλλοντα ἐκκόπτεσθαι, ";he wishes to cut down some trees, so that those which are to be cut down may be cut. skilfully"; (Edd.) : cf. Proleg. p. 115 for exx. of the survival in NT Greek of this classical idiom. A new noun κόπτρον is found in P Lond 1171.62 (B.C. 8) (= III. p. 179) κόπτ ̣ρα ἀράκου : for κοπτός, ";a cake,"; see P Oxy I. 113.31 (ii/A.D.). MGr κόβ [γ ]ω, κόφτω.
