Vocabulary of the Greek NT

χιτών, ";a tunic,"; ";an undergarment,"; as distinguished from ἱμάτιον (q.v.) : cf. Preisigke 6717.9 (B.C. 258 or 257) χιτῶνα καὶ ἱμάτιον, PSI I. 64.10 (i/B.C.?) ἱμάτιον ταλάντων πέντε χιτῶνα [δὲ or τε ? δραχμῶν ] τετρακισχιλίων ἑξακοσίων, and Musonius p. 107.7.

The form χιτών, which occurs throughout in the NT, may be seen further in Preisigke 6783.4 (B.C. 257) χιτὼν βύ [σσινος, and P Oxy I. 114.6 (ii/iii A.D.) χιτὼν καὶ μαφόρτιν λευκόν, ";a tunic and a white veil."; For other forms, which are frequent in the Κοινή, we may note the Ionic κιτών, as in Mar. 14:63 B* (cf. Proleg. p. 38), in BGU I. 22.16 (A.D. 114) (= Selections, p. 75) περιέσχισέ μοι τὸν κιτῶνα καὶ τὸ πάλλιον, ";she stripped off my tunic and mantle,"; P Oxy I. 113.8 (ii/A.D.) ὁ κιτὼν ὑφανθῆναι μέλλει, ";the tunic is to be woven immediately,"; ib. X. 1269.30 (early ii/A.D.), cited s.v. ὑποτίθημι, and P Fay 108.17, .21 (c. A.D. 171) : κίθων in P Oxy II. 298.11 (i/A.D.) ἰς κιθῶ (να), P Giss I. 77.6 (ii/A.D.) ἔπεμ [ψ ]ας μοι τὸν κιθῶναν, and P Ryl II. 440.9 (iii/A.D.) πέμψον μοι τὸν τριβακὸν κιθῶνα : the dim. κιτώνιον in P Tebt II, 421.5 (iii/A.D.) τὸ κιτώνιον αὐτῆς τὸ λευκὸν παρὰ σοὶ ἔνιγκο ̣ν ̣ (l. ἔνεγκον), ";bring the white tunic of hers that you have"; : and the dim. κιθώνιον in P Oxy X. 1310 (iii/A.D.) κιθώνιον ἀργέντιον καὶ μαφόρτιον, and ib. XII. 1489.2, .8 (late iii/A.D.).

The word was formerly regarded as of Semitic origin, but is now traced to Asia Minor : see Wilcken UPZ i. p. 390, n.1.
