σιγή, σιγῆς, (from σίζω (onomatopoetic, Etym. Magn. 712, 29) i. e. to command silence by making the sound st or sch; (yet σιγή probably has no connection with σίζω, but is of European origin (cf. German schweigen); cf. Fick, Part 3:843; Curtius, § 572)), from Homer down, silence: Acts 21:40; Revelation 8:1.
