Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For πέλαγος, ";the open sea"; (note the conjunction with θάλασσα in Matthew 18:6), see OGIS 74.3 (B.C. 247–221) Θεύδοτος Δωρίωνος Ἰουδαῖος σωθεὶς ἐκ πελ (άγ)ους, and cf. ib. 69.4 ff. σωθεὶς ἐγ μεγάλων κινδύνων ἐκπλεύσας ἐκ τῆς Ἐρυθρᾶς θαλάσσης. The adj. πελάγιος occurs in the sailor’s song P Oxy XI. 1383 (late iii/A.D.) where the 2nd column begins—

Ῥοδίοις ἐκέλευον ἀνέμοις καὶ μέρε ̣σι τ ̣οῖς πελαγίοις,

ὅτε πλέειν ἤθελον ἐγώ,

";I commanded the Rhodian winds and the seaward parts when I wished to sail.";
