Vocabulary of the Greek NT

See the first citation s.v. αὐλητής . In BGU IV. 1125 ὑπαυλισμός is a flute accompaniment.

On a possible connexion of αὐλός with Heb חָלַל ";bore,"; ";pierce,"; and then ";pipe,"; see Lewy Fremdwörte, p. 165 f. But Lithuanian and Slavonic words given in Boisacq s.v. are much closer; and there is ἔναυλος , ";ravine,"; to be reckoned with.
