Thayer's Expanded Definition

ληνός, ληνοῦ, (also , Genesis 30:38, 41 (cf. below)) (Theocritus, Diodorus, others);

1. a tubor trough-shaped receptacle, vat, in which grapes are trodden (A. V. wine-press) (Hebrew גַּת): Revelation 14:20; Revelation 19:15; τήν ληνόν ... τόν μέγαν (for R Tr marginal reading τήν μεγάλην), Revelation 14:19 — a variation in gender which (though not rare in Hebrew, see Gesenius, Lehrgeb., p. 717) can hardly be matched in Greek writings; cf. Winers Grammar, 526 (490) and his Exeget. Studd. i., p. 153f; Buttmann, 81 (71).

2. equivalent to ὑπολήνιον (Isaiah 16:10; Mark 12:1) or προλήνιον (Isaiah 5:2), Hebrew יֶקֶב, the lower vat, dug in the ground, into which the must or new wine flowed from the press: Matthew 21:33. Cf. Winers RWB, under the word Kelter; Roskoff in Schenkel 3:513; (BB. DD. under the word ).

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

P Amh II. 48.7 (B.C. 106) παρὰ ληνόν, ";at the wine-press,"; P Oxy IV. 729.19 (A.D. 137) ἀπ ]οδότωσαν τῷ μεμισθ [ω ]κότι τὸν μὲν οἷνον παρὰ ληνὸν νέον ἄδολον, ";they shall pay to the lessor the wine at the vat, new and unadulterated"; (Edd.), ib. III. 502.36 (A.D. 164) τὰς οὔσας ληνοὺς λιθίνας δύο ὑδριῶν καὶ ὅλμου, ";the two existing stone presses with the water-pitchers and trough"; (Edd.). The word is sometimes used to denote generally a receptacle for holding wine, see e.g. P Flor II. 139.1 (mid. iii/A.D.) τὴν δεκάτη [ν ] ληνὸν ἀπόλυσον Μαξίμῳ, with the editor’s note. In Wünsch AF 4.19 (iii/A.D.) τοὺς ληνοὺς ὅλους (for gender cf. Genesis 30:38; Genesis 30:41) = ";the whole coffins.";
