Vocabulary of the Greek NT

This NT ἅπ. εἰρ. (James 5:1) occurs in the curious spell for transforming a goddess into the appearance of an old woman, P Lond 125 verso.30 (V/A.D.) (= I. p. 124) ὀλολύξασ᾽ ἡ γραῦς φεύξεται ὅπως μὴ εὐκόλως αὐτὴν ἀπολύσῃς. For the subst. see P Leid Wxxi. 30 (ii/iii A.D.) (= II. p. 155) ἔσω προσβαλόμενος μύκησαι ὀλολυγμός (l. μόν), P Lond 121.323 (iii/A.D.) (=1. p. 94) μὴ φωνὴ μὴ ὀλολυγμὸς μὴ σιυριγμός (l. συριγμός), and .769 (p. 109). For the adj. ὀλολυγαῖος see Kaibel 546.6 (Imperial) ὀλολυγαία νυκτερίς, ";a howling bat,"; and for ὀλολύκτρια (not in LS) applied to a woman ";crying aloud"; at a sacrifice see Syll 566 (=.3982).35 (ii/B.C.). The words are onomatopoetic : cf. ὑλακτέω, Lat. ululare.
