Vocabulary of the Greek NT

Ramsay has shown (Paul, p. 260 f., Recent Discovery, p. 102 ff.) that ὁ Ἄρειος Πάγος had come to denote in colloquial use (as in Acts 17:19; Acts 17:22) ";the Council of the Areopagus"; as distinguished from ";the Hill of Ares,"; where in early times the Council had met : see e.g. Cavvadias, Fouilles d’ Épidaure i. p. 68, No. 206 (A.D. 50–100) Ἄρειος Πάγος ἐν Ἐλευσῖνι λόγους ἐποιήσατο. For the full expression cf. Syll 593 (=.3 1008).3 (iii/A.D.) τῆς ἐξ Ἀρείου πάγου βουλῆς.
