Vocabulary of the Greek NT

";a mixture,"; and hence ";a lump"; (Rom. 11:16, al.) : cf. the account of a beer-seller P Tebt II. 401.27 (early i/A.D.) in which reference is made to—φυράμ (ατος) (ἀρτάβαι) ε ̄ (δραχμαί), and P Lond 46.378 (iv/A.D.) (=1. p. 77) εἰς ὅλο (ν) τὸ φύραμα.

For the verb φυράω cf. the medical receipt P Oxy VIII. 1088.22 (early i/A.D.) μάνναν φύρασον χυλῶι πράσωι καὶ ἐνάλιψον τὸν χυλὸν ἐνδόθεν, ";mix frankincense with onion-juice and apply the juice inside"; (Ed.), to stop nose-bleeding, ib. XIV. 1692.21 (A.D. 188) φυράσι τὸν Πηλουσι ̣[ακὸν οἶνον ?]. The compd. ἀναφυράω, ";mix up well,"; occurs in Syll 807 (=.81173).9 (not earlier than A.D. 138) τέφραν μετ᾽ οἴνου ἀναφυρᾶσαι.
