Thayer's Expanded Definition

κοράσιον, κορασίου, τό (diminutive of κόρη), properly, a colloquial word used disparagingly (like the German Mädel), a little girl (in the epigram attributed to Plato in (Diogenes Laërtius 3, 33; Lucian, as. 6); used by later writers without disparagement (Winers Grammar, 24 (23)), a girl, damsel, maiden: Matthew 9:24; Matthew 14:11; Mark 5:41; Mark 6:22, 28; (occasionally, as in Epictetus diss. 2, 1, 28; 3, 2, 8; 4, 10, 33; the Sept. for נַעֲרָה; twice also for יַלְדָּה Joel 3:3 (Joel 4:3); Zechariah 8:5; (Tobit 6:12; Judith 16:12; Esther 2:2)). The form and use of the word are fully discussed in Lobeck ad Phryn., p. 73f, cf. Sturz, De dial. Maced. etc., p. 42f.

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

P Strass I. 79.2 (a deed of sale—B.C. 16–15) κοράσιον δουλικόν, BGU III. 887.9 (A.D. 151) πέπρ [ακα τὸ ] κ ̣[ο ]ρ ̣[ ]σ ̣[ι ]ον δηναρίων τριακοσίων πεντή [κοντα, ib. 913.7 (A.D. 206) δουλικὸ [ν ] αὑτῆς κοράσιον –a female slave, and P Lond 331.5 (A.D. 165) (= II. p. 154), where a certain Cosmas is hired σὺν ἐπιστή (μοσι) . . . τρισὶ καὶ κορασίοις τέσσαρασι (l. τέσσαρσι), ";with three . . . and four girls"; (not ";lads"; as Ed.) to assist at a village-festival (see Wilcken Archiv i. p. 153, iii. p. 241). The word, which survives in MGr, is late and colloquial (cf. Sturz Dialect, p. 42 f.), and the idea of disparagement which old grammarians noticed (cf. Lob. Phryn. p. 73 ff., Rutherford NP, p. 148) reappears to some extent in the above papyri, though it is wanting in LXX and NT (";cum nulla εὐτελισμοῦ significatione";); see Kennedy Sources, p. 154.
