Thayer's Expanded Definition

δίκτυον, δικτύου, τό (perhaps from ΔΙΚΑΙΝ to cast, cf. Etym. Magn. col. 275, 21), a net: Matthew 4:20; Mark 1:18; Luke 5:2, 4-6; John 21:6, 8, 11. (Homer and following.) [SYNONYMS: δίκτυον, ἀμφίβληστρον, σαγήνη: δίκτυον seems to be the general name for nets of all kinds; whereas ἀμφίβληστρον and σαγήνη designate specifically nets for fishing: — the former a casting-net, generally pear-shaped; the latter a seine or drag-net. Cf. Trench, § lxiv.; B. D. under the word .]

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

A Christian epitaph from Aegina, Kaibel 421 (? v/A.D.) makes the departed rejoice because

δίκτυα λυγρὰ

καὶ γοερὰς παγίδας προὔφυγον ἀμπλακίης.

This is of course purely literary, but between Epictetus and the Gospels we may be sure of vernacular warranty. Moreover it survives in MGr δίχτυ.
