Vocabulary of the Greek NT

λίνον is used with reference to ";linen"; cloths or garments, as in Revelation 15:6 PQ (see contra WH Notes.2, p. 139), in such passages as P Oxy X. 1281.6 (A.D. 21) τὴν τειμὴν τῶν ἑκατὸν λίνων Σινυραιτικ ̣ω ̣ν ̣. ";the price of the hundred cloths of Sinaru,"; P Tebt II. 314.16 (ii/A.D.) καλῶς π [ο ]ιήσις διαπεμψάμενός μοι τὰ λίνα, ";you will oblige me by sending the cloths,"; ib 406.18 (c. A.D. 266) λίνα λευκὰ ἀριθμῷ ι ̄[̄β ̄]̄, ";white linen cloths twelve in number,"; P Leid Wviii. 2 (ii/iii A.D.) στώλισον αὐτὸν λίνῳ καθαρῷ, xv. 4 σὺ δ᾽ ἐν λίνοις ἴσθι καθαροῖς ἑστημμένος, BGU II, 450.17 (ii/iii A.D.) περὶ τῶν λίνων, ὧν χρείαν ἔλεγες ἔχειν, δήλωσόν μοι, al. : cf.
