Vocabulary of the Greek NT

σαργάνη in the sense of a flexible ";mat-basket"; occurs in the NT only in 2 Corinthians 11:33, but can be freely illustrated from the Κοινή, e.g. BGU II. 417.14 (ii/iii A.D.) π [ε ]ρὶ ἐνοικίου κοφίνων καὶ τειμῆς σαρλανῶν, P Flor II. 269.7 (A.D. 257) τὰς οἰνηγὰς καὶ τὰς σιτικὰς σ ̣αρ [γ ] [ν ]ας, P Oxy VI. 938.3 (iii/iv A.D.) δώδεκα σαργάνας χόρτου (cf. .6). and P Lond 23.11 (c. A.D. 346) (= II. p. 291) ἐλαίου σπάθια (";measures";) δύο καὶ τὴν σαργάνην. In P Strass I. 37.13 (iii/A.D.) τῆς ἡμῶν σαργάν [ης, the editor suggests that the reference may be to a ";travelling-basket.";

The dim. σαργάνιον is found in P Lips I. 21.18 (A.D. 382) ἀχύρου σαργάνιον ἕν, and σαργανίτιον in BGU IV. 1095.21 (A.D. 57) : cf. also P Goodsp Cairo 30xxii. 13 (A.D. 191–192) σαργανείλ ̣[ω ]ν ̣.
