Vocabulary of the Greek NT

With this compound, which is rare outside Biblical Greek (cf. Anz Subsidia, p. 366), we may compare λιθοκοπέω (not found in LS8), for which Mayser (Gr. p. 461) cites P Vat F.20 (Mai V. 356) (B.C. 157), ib. E.25 (Mai V. 354), although in both places Mai reads λιθοκοπετέω.
