Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For χολή, ";gall,"; ";bile,"; as in Mat. 27:34, cf. PSI III. 211.4 (v/A.D.) τὸν τῆς [[σ ]]χολῆς νοσήσαντα. See also Ev. Petr. 5 ποτίσατε αὐτὸν χολὴν μετὰ ὄξους, with Swete’s illustrative note. The power of ";gall"; in medical and magical receipts is discussed by Olsson ad P Osl I. 1.284 (iv/A.D.) (p. 104 f.). In Herodas III. 70 (ed. Headlam) δότω τις ἐς τὴν χεῖρα πρὶν χολῇ βῆξαι, editor translates ";put it into my hand before I choke with choler"; : (see the note p. 150).
