Vocabulary of the Greek NT

This rare word, confined in the NT to Mark 14:3, John 12:3, is sometimes derived (as by LS8) from πίνω in the sense of ";liquid,"; but is better understood as from πιστός = ";true,"; ";genuine"; : see the discussion with interesting details in Winer-Schmiedel Gr. p. 138, and cf. ZNTW iii. p. 169 ff. where Nestle finds no ground for Naber’s suggestion (Mnemosyne xxx. (1902), p. 1 ff.) that in the NT passages σπειστικῆς, ointment ";that can be poured out,"; should be read for πιστικῆς. Abbott (Joh. Voc. p. 252), on the other hand, believes that the word in the original was some form of σπικάτον (not in LS8), and refers to Wetstein for illustrations of σπικάτον as an ointment in use among women of luxury.

For πιστικός, ";faithful,"; applied to persons, commentators are in the habit of referring to the description of a good wife in Artem. p. 128.23 (c. A.D. 150)—πιστικὴν καὶ οἰκουρόν, but Hercher prefers to read πιστήν, as also in pp. 158.3, 189.17. We can, however, supply instances of this usage from the papyri, e.g. P Mon I. 8.2 (last quarter vi/A.D.) υἱοῦ μου γνησίου καὶ πιστικοῦ and .4 εἵλασθαί σε ὡς πιστικόν, and for the more specialized sense of ";one entrusted with the management of a ship,"; ";a ship-master,"; see the introd. to the above papyrus, and Bell’s note ad P Lond 1341.12 (A.D. 709). Cf. also P Flor III. 336.3 (vii/A.D. ?), and possibly ib. 311.2 (A.D. 447). In Vett. Val. p. 10.14 πιστικοί is followed as a term of praise by ἀγαθοὶ οἰκονόμοι.
