Vocabulary of the Greek NT

a measurement of distance = 600 Greek feet, or about 12 yards short of a ";furlong,"; which is used to translate it in AV, RV of Luke 24:13, al. : cf. Preisigke 401.9 (A.D. 10–11) ἐπὶ σταδ [ίου ]ς δι ̣α ̣κοσίους. As a stade was the length of the Olympic course, the word came to be used of ";a racecourse,"; as in P Ryl II. 93.16 (iii/A.D.) where σταδίου appears as the heading of a list of athletes : cf. 1 Corinthians 9:24. In ib. 157.7 (A.D. 135) the words ἐν [σ ]τ ̣αδίωι δευτέρωι occur in connexion with the measurement of a plot of land, but their meaning is ";quite obscure"; (Edd.).
