Vocabulary of the Greek NT

orig. ";a drinking party,"; ";a banquet,"; e.g. Preisigke 1106.5 (Ptol.) οἱ συνπόσιον γευόμενοι φιλαγαθίας ἕνεκεν τῆς εἰς ἑαυτούς. From this it is an easy transition to the ";room"; in which the party was given (Hesych. : συμπόσιον · τόπος εὐωχίας καὶ πόσεως) : cf. P Ryl II. 233.5 (ii/A.D.) τοῦ μεικροῦ συμποσίου, ";the small dining-room,"; P Oxy VIII. 1128.14 (A.D. 173), the lease at a rent of 20 drachmae per annum of a dining-room and the store-chamber within it—τὸ συμπόσιον καὶ τὴν ἐντὸς αὐτοῦ κέλλαν, ib, I. 76.19 (A.D. 179) συμπόσιον καὶ κοιτῶνα, and ib. VIII. 1159.26 (late iii/A.D.) ἔνεγκον τὸ τυλάριον τ [ ] παλαιὸν τὸ ἐν τῷ συμποσίῳ ἄνω, ";bring the old cushion that is up in the dining-room"; (Ed.). In P Flor 1.5.7 (A.D. 244–5) συμπόσιον ὑπερῷον, συμπόσιον appears to be used as an adj.

In Mark 6:39 συμπόσια συμπόσια the word is extended to the ";companies"; of diners : the construction can no longer be regarded as Hebraistic, see Proleg. p. 97,
