Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For the formation of this word, which is not found except in Acts 27:14, the lexicographers compare Εὐρόνοτος. According to Blass (ad l.), it is a ";vox hybrida"; made up of εὖρος and aquilo (qui Lat. = κυ ̆ as in Ἀκύλας 18.2) : cf. Goodspeed Exp VI. viii. p. 140, ";the Greek east wind combined with the Latin north-east (more exactly east-north-east) wind.";
