Vocabulary of the Greek NT

In Proleg. p. 48 Moulton suggests that Νύμφαν, which apparently should be read as a woman’s name in Colossians 4:15, is not due to a Doric Νύμφαν, but by a ";reverse analogy process"; the gen. Νύμφης produced the short nom. Νύμφα ̆, like δόξα, δόξης. He compares Εἰρῆνα in a Christian inscr. C. and B. ii. p. 497 n..5.
