Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For the ἔτυπτον. . καλάμῳ of Mark 15:19, Ev. Petr. 3 substitutes καλάμῳ ἔνυσσον. This may perhaps be taken as supporting the milder sense of ";pricked"; instead of ";pierced"; (AV, RV) which Field (Notes, p. 108) prefers in John 19:34 πλευρὰν ἔνυξεν, in distinction from ἐξεκέντησαν in ver. 37. Swete ad Ev. Petr. l.c. cites also Orac. Sib. viii 296 πλευρὰς νύξουσιν καλάμῳ.
