Vocabulary of the Greek NT

";a bier"; (Luke 7:14) : cf. P Lond 122.97 (iv/A.D.) (= I. p. 119) ὁ ἐπὶ τῆς ζυρνίνῃ (l. ζμυρνίνῃ) σορῷ κατακείμενος, and ib. 121.236 (iii/A.D.) (= I. p. 92) ὁ ἐπὶ σωρῷ κατακείμενος. From the inscrr. we may cite the sepulchral Kaibel 336.2 εἰμὶ δ᾽ Ἀλεξανδρεύς, τῶν δὲ [σ ]ορ [ῶν ] ὁ μέσος, and C. and B. ii. p. 717, No. 651 (mid. iii/A.D.), where two Christian soldiers erect for themselves τὸν βωμὸν καὶ τὴν κατ᾽ αὐτοῦ σορόν, a symbolic bier carved on the altar, and in the usual manner warn off intruders from the family vault : no one is to place there ξενὸν νεκρὸν ἢ σορόν, i.e. ";a strange body or a bier that has carried it.";

See also the inscr. on the tomb of a iv/A.D. Lycaonian Bishop, as published by W. M. Calder in Exp VII. vi. p. 387—.18 ἐποίησα ἐμαυτῷ πέ [λτα τ ]ε καὶ σορὸν ἐν ᾗ τὰ προ [γεγραμένα ] ταῦτα ἐποίησα ἐπιγρ ()φιν ἐμὸν τῆς τε ἐκ [δοχῆς ] τοῦ γένους μου, ";I made myself a monument and sarcophagus on which I had the above engraved, on (this my tomb) and the tomb of the successors of my race,"; and Cagnat IV. 245.2 ἔθη ]κα τὴν σορὸν ἐμαυτῷ [καὶ τῇ συμβίῳ μου. In P Hib I. 67.14 (B.C. 228) (= Chrest. I. p. 366) σορώϊον is cloth used for burials.
