Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The thought of ";external bearing"; or ";fashion"; which in general distinguishes this word from μορφή, ";what is essential and permanent"; (see s.v. μορφή), and which comes out so clearly in Philippians 2:8, may be illustrated by such passages as the following : P Tor I. 1 viii. 32 (B.C. 116) (= Chrest. II. p. 39) ἐμφανίστου σχῆμα, ";delatoris more,"; P Leid W iii. 20 (ii/iii A.D.) Αἰγυπτιακῷ σχήματι, so xv. 16 (= II. pp. 89, 133), P Giss I. 40.28 (A.D. 215) ὄψεις τε καὶ σχῆμα, P Lond 121.760 (magic—iii/A.D.) (= I. p. 108) ὁ σχηματίσας εἰς τὰ εἴκοσι καὶ ὀκτὼ σχήματα τοῦ κόσμου, P Amh II. 142.14 (iv/A.D.) καταφρονήσαντες τῆς περὶ ἐμὲ ἀπραγμοσύνης καὶ τοῦ σχήματος, ";despising my easiness of temper and bearing,"; and Syll 652 (= .3 885).12 (c. A.D. 220) με [τὰ τ ]οῦ εἰθισμένου σχήμα [τος ] τῆς ἅμα ἱεροῖς πομπ [ῆς.

In the sepulchral epigram PSI I. 17 verso.1 (iii/A.D.) ἀγ ]γέλλει τὸ σχῆμα κ (αὶ) [νδαλμ᾽ οὐ ] βραχὺν ἄνδρα, the word appears to = ";image,"; ";statue"; : see further Calderini in SAM i. p. 19 ff., where for the alternative meaning ";(ceremonial) dress"; he cites Kaibel 239.4 ἁγνὸν ἐφήβου σχῆμα λαχών, and ib. addenda 874 a.5 (i/B.C. ?) Ἐνυαλίου κατ᾽ ἔνοπλον σχῆμα, i. e. in martial panoply. Cf. Menander Fragm. p. 127, No. 439 εὐλοιδόρητον. . . φαίνεται τὸ τοῦ στρατιώτου σχῆμα, ";the rôle of mercenary soldier lends itself to abuse.";

For the astrological use of the word it must suffice to refer to the horoscope P Lond 130.21 (i/ii A.D.) (= I. p. 133) λεπτὸν σχῆμα, and to the reff. in Vett. Val. Index II. s.v.
