Vocabulary of the Greek NT

This dim. of κύων, which occurs quater in the NT, is used atleast once by Epictetus—iv. 1. 111 εἶθ᾽ οὕτως. . πρόσελθε ἐπὶ κυνάριον, ἐπὶ ἱππάριον, ἐπὶ ἀγρίδιον, ";then proceed thus . . . to a dog, a horse, an estate"; (Sharp, p. 23). For the more classical κυνίδιον (Lob. Phryn. p.180) see M. Antoninus vii. 13 κυνιδίοις ὀστάριον ἐρριμένον, ";a bone thrown to lap-dogs.";
