Vocabulary of the Greek NT

λυχνία is another form of λυχνεῖον, ";lamp-stand,"; which in later Greek passed from the vernacular into the LXX and NT : cf. Lob. Phryn. p. 313 f. λυχνίαν ἀντὶ τοῦ λύχνιον (λέγε), ὡς ἡ κωμῳδία. If we may amend the editor’s accent in keeping with the context, λυχνία is found as early as B.C. 284–3 m P Eleph 5.7 λυχνία (instead of λύχνια) σιδηρᾶ α ̄, and Mayser (Gr. p. 425) quotes it in Asia Minor before B.C. 243, e.g. CIG II. 2852.14, .61 (Didym.) : see also OGIS 214.13 (B.C. 240) τήν τε λυχνίαν τὴν μεγάλην, .60λυχνία χαλκῆ μεγάλη, and cf. Cos 36 d..7 (= Syll 734.118) λυχνίας δύο, κα [ ] λύχνους χαλκοῦς ἑπταπύρους δύο, ";two stands for lamps, and two bronze lamps with seven wicks"; (Edd.). Other exx. from the papyri are P Lond 402.17 (B.C. 152 or 141) (= II. p. 11) λυχνίαν, P Oxy IV. 736.91 (c. A.D. I) κόλλητρα λυχνίας (ὀβολοὶ δύο) (ἡμιωβέλιον), ";cost of tinkering a lamp-stand 2½ ob.,"; P Tebt II. 414.19 (ii/A.D.) τὸν σκύφον καὶ τὴν λυχνίαν καὶ τὸ σφυρίδιν, ";the can, the lamp-stand, the little basket,"; ib. 416.12 (c. A.D. 266) λυχνεία τελεία σὺν ἔρωτι καὶ λυχ [νί ], ";a complete lamp-stand with a Cupid and lamp"; (Edd.), and P Grenf II. 111.18 f. (inventory of church property—v/vi A.D.) λυχνίαι χαλκ (αῖ) δ ̄, λυχνίαι σιδηρ (αῖ) β ̄. In connexion with the Hebrew tombs in Phrygia, Sir W. M. Ramsay mentions (Exp T xxvi. p. 173) that only in one case has he seen the characteristically Hebrew symbol of the seven-branched candlestick, namely C. and B. ii. p. 651 f., No. 561, where it is found beneath the inscr. ὑπὲρ εὐχῆ πάση τῇ πατρίδι.We may add the Alexandrian inscr. preisigke 369 Ἰούδα with the same symbol reproduced below.
