Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For this proper name, as in Acts 6:5, cf. IG XIV. 682, 1252,and the many exx. in Preisigke’s Sammelbuch, see Index. On νικο -λαός in popular etymology a rough Greek equivalent for, בלע עם leading to the identification of the Nicolaitans with the Balaamites, see Moffatt on Revelation 2:6 in EGT. Harnack rejects any allegorical interpretation of the name (The Journal of Religion iii. (1923), p. 413 ff.).
