Vocabulary of the Greek NT

περίψημα, as distinguished from περικάθαρμα (q.v.), the ";rinsing,"; is the ";scraping"; of a dirty vessel. It is found in Tobit 5:19, where the meaning may be either ";offscouring"; (cf. Ignat. Eph. xviii. 1) or ";ransom."; For this latter meaning cf. the phrase περίψημα ἡμῶν γενοῦ, which, according to Photius Lex., was pronounced over the criminal who at Athens was flung into the sea as a propitiatory offering to avert public calamity. From this, περίψημά σου came to be used as an epistolary formula much like ";your humble and devoted servant"; : cf. Ignat. Eph. viii. 1 with Lightfoot’s note ad l., and especially the Festal Letter of Dionysius of Alexandria (Eus. H.E. vii. 22. 7), who says that this ";popular saying which always seems a mere expression of courtesy"; (τὸ δημῶδες ῥῆμα μόνης ἀεὶ δοκοῦν φιλοφροσύνης ἔχεσθαι) was translated into action by those Christians who, during the plague, gave their lives in tending the sick. In this connexion cf. the use of the word in an epitaph by a wife on her husband—εὐψύχει, κύριέ μου Μάξιμε, ἐγώ σου περίψημα τῆς καλῆς ψυχῆς (cited by Thieling Der Hellenismus in Kleinafrika, p. 34).

For the verb Herwerden (Lex. s.v. περιψῆν) cites an inscr. from Delos of B.C. 250, BCH xxvii. (1903), p. 74.84 σπόγγοι περιψῆσαι τὰ ἀναθήματα.
