ψευδομάρτῠρ-α, τά,

= ψευδομαρτύρια, IG 5(2).357.5,6(Stymphalus, iii B.C.).

ψευδομαρτῠρ-ία, ἡ,

false witness, D. 41.16 codd.; ψευδομαρτυρίαν καταγνῶναί τινος Isaiah 12:6 codd.: ἐν ψευδομαρτυρίαις D. 57.53 codd.: but mostly in gen. pl., ψευδομαρτυριῶν διάκρισις Pl. Lg. 937b; -ιῶν δίκη Isaiah 3:6; κρίσεις Arist. Pol. 1263b21; -ιῶν ἑλεῖν τινα to convict, and ἁλῶναι to be convicted, of perjury, Isaiah 5:15; Isaiah 1:7, Lys. 10.25, Aeschin. 1.85; ὀφλεῖν And. 1.74; -ιῶν ἐπισκήψασθαί τινι make allegation of perjury against one, D. 29.7; etc. (This form is perh. always corrupt in codd. of classical authors; -ίων (gen. pl. neut., cf. sq.) shd. prob. be read for -ιῶν, and may be restored for -ίαν in D. 41.16, Isaiah 12:6; so -ίοις for -ίαις in D. 57.53: των ψευδομαρτυριων is unaccented in Pap. of Hyp. Phil. 12: ψευδομαρτυρια[ν is an uncertain restoration in IG 5(2).357.3 (Stymphalus, iii B.C.); but the fem. form existed later, Matthew 15:19, Matthew 26:59.)

Thayer's Expanded Definition

ψευδομαρτυρ, unless more correctly ψευδόμαρτυς or rather ψευδόμαρτυς (as ἀυτομαρτυρ; see Passow, under the word, ψευδόμαρτυς (especially Lob. Paralip., p. 217; cf. Etym. Magn. 506, 26)), ψευδομαρτυρος, , (ψευδής and μάρτυρ (which see)), a false witness: Matthew 26:60; τοῦ θεοῦ, false witnesses of i. e. concerning God (Winer's Grammar, § 30, 1 a.), 1 Corinthians 15:15. (Plato, Gorgias, p. 472b.; Aristotle, pol. 2, 9, 8 (p. 1274b, 6; but the true reading here is ψευδομαρτυριων (see Bentley's Works, Dyce edition, vol. i., p. 408); a better example is Aristotle, rhet. ad Alex. 16, p. 1432{a}, 6; cf. Plutarch, praec. ger. reip. 29, 1; Apostolic Constitutions 5, 9; Pollux 6, 36, 153).)
