Vocabulary of the Greek NT

σύνδεσμος in its lit. sense of ";fastening"; (cf. Colossians 2:19) occurs in Aristeas 85 τοῦ θυρώματος δὲ καὶ τῶν περὶ αὐτὸ συνδέσμων κατὰ τὰς φλιάς, ";the great doorway and the fastenings which held it to the door-posts"; (Thackeray). For the metaph. usage in Colossians 3:14 Wetstein cites from Simplicius in Epictet. p. 208 a parallel expression of the Pythagoreans : καλῶς οἱ Πυθαγορεῖοι περισσῶς τῶν ἄλλων ἀρετῶν τὴν φιλίαν ἐτίμων καὶ σύνδεσμον αὐτὴν πασῶν τῶν ἀρετῶν ἔλεγον. It may be noted that for τελειότητα in Col l.c. D* Gdeg read ἑνότητα. Σύνδεσις is used of the ";continuation"; of a text on the following page in P Oxy XIV. 1737.23 (ii/iii A.D.).
