Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For the original meaning of this adj. ";thick,"; ";close,"; cf. P Fay 113.8 (A.D. 100) ἐπὶ (= εὶ) Ἑρμοναξ ἐρώτησέ με, εἵνα ἐφίδῃ τὸν [ ]λαιῶνα αὐτοῦ τὸν ἐν Κερκεσούχυ (= οι)ς ἐπὶ πυκνός ἐστιν τῦ (= οῖ)ς φυτῦ (= οῖ)ς, καὶ ἐξ αὐτο (= ω ̣)ν ἐκκόψαι θέλι φυτά, ";since Hermonax has asked me to allow him to look over his olive-yard at Kerkesucha, as it is overgrown with trees, and he wishes to cut down some of the trees"; (Edd.) : see also ib. 114.13. Πυκνός = ";frequent,"; as in 1 Timothy 5:23, is found in Aristeas 90 πυκνὰ τὰ στόματα, ";frequent outlets.";

For the comparative of the adverb, as in Acts 24:26,= ";very often,"; or ";so much the oftener"; (Blass Gr. p. 142), cf. P Oxy IV. 805 (B.C. 25) ἀξιῶ δὲ ἀντιφωνεῖν [μ ]οι πυκνότερον : see also P Leid Wii. 14 (ii/iii A.D.) τῆς ὥρας πυκνότερον, similarlyx. 39, and Aristeas 318. The form πυκνοτέρως occurs in P Lond 1929.6 (mid. iv/A.D.) παρακαλῶ οὖν πυκνο [τέ ]ρ ̣ως ήμῶν ̣ μ ̣ν ̣ήσθη [τι. For the verb πυκνόω, used intransitively, cf. Clem. Al. Paedagog. i. 6. 44 χειμῶνος μὲν πυκνοῦντος (as against Cobet 277 πυκνοῦ ὄντος : cf. philologus lxiii. (N.F. xvii.), 1904, p. 3). See also Polyb. xviii. 7. 8.
