The form κυλισμός, ";rolling,"; which is read in the best texts of 2 Peter 2:22, is found in Proverbs 2:18 (Theod.). For κύλισμα, as in the TR, cf. Ezekiel 10:13 (Symm.), where, however, the word has its proper meaning, ";something rolled round,"; rather than a ";rolling-place"; as in the Petrine passage. In P Hib I. 110 (iii/B.C.) certain documents are described as κυλιστοί, ";rolls."; According to the editors the difference from ἐπιστολαί, which are also mentioned, was ";perhaps one of size rather than of contents"; : cf. also Preisigke 1.17 (iii/A.D.) κυλιστοὺς ἱματίων δέκα.
