Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For πῆχυς in its original meaning of ";forearm,"; cf. P Amh II. 102.9 (A.D. 180) οὐλὴ π [ ]χι δεξιῷ, ";a scar on the right forearm."; As a measure of length, a ";cubit,"; about one and a half feet (cf. Hultsch, Archiv iii. p. 438 ff.), the word hardly needs illustration, but we may cite one or two exx. of the contr. πηχῶν (for πηχέων) as in John 21:8, Revelation 21:17—P Petr II. 41.2 f. (iii/B.C.) πηχῶν ι ̄θ ̄ πλάτος πηχῶν ι ̄η ̄ εἴσοδος, P Par 14.14 (B.C. 127) πηχῶν δέκα ἕξ, and P Lond 154.9 (A.D. 68) (= II. p. 179) ἔξοδος κοινὴ πλα ̣τ ̣ο ̣υς πηχῶ [ν ] τ [ριῶ ]ν : other exx. in Mayser Gr. i. p. 267. and for the LXX usage see Thackeray Gr. i. p. 151. On the possibility that πῆχυς may refer to extension of time in Matthew 6:27 (Luke 12:25) see s.v. ἡλικία. A subst. πηχισμός, which LS describe as ";Eccl.,"; is not uncommon in connexion with measurements, as of the ground-space occupied by a house in P Strass I. 9.8 (c. A.D. 307 or 352) μέτροις ] καὶ πηχισμ ̣οῖς καὶ θεμελίοις καὶ τίχεσιν. MGr πῆχυ, ";cubit"; : see Thumb Handbook, p. 57.
