Vocabulary of the Greek NT

To the quotations for this adj. from Plutarch and Epictetus given by Grimm-Thayer, Deissmann (LAE p. 77) adds a reference to Herodas vi. 19 τὸν κόκκινον βαυβῶνα. From a later date we have such occurrences in the papyri as P Hamb I. 10.24 (ii/A.D.) κοκκίνην, P Tebt II. 405.5 (iii/A.D.) φορφυροῦ [ν ] καὶ κόκκινον, ";purple and scarlet"; (cf. Revelation 17:4), and P Lond 193 verso.22 (ii/A.D.) (= II. p. 246), the accounts of a pawnshop, which show that a ";scarlet shirt";—κιτὼν κόκκινος —realized an advance of 20 drachmae as against II drachmae for a ";new white shirt"; (χιτὼν ἄγναφος λευκός). On Hebrews 9:19 we may refer to Abt (Die Apologie des Apul., p. 148), who quotes Theocr. ii. 2 φοινικέῳ οἰὸς ἀώτῳ, and P Lond 46.338 (IV/A.D.) (= I. p. 77) ἅμματι φοινικίνῳ, pointing out ";der lustrative Charakter des Purpur."; MGr κόκκινος, ";red"; : κοκκινίζω, ";blush.";
