Vocabulary of the Greek NT

";a flock";—the diminutive meaning, as in late Greek generally, cannot be pressed, cf. P Ryl II. 114.20 (c. A.D. 280), where a widow complains to the praefect that her husband’s former master had seized certain flocks belonging to the deceased, καὶ μέχρι τῆς σήμε [ρον οἰκειῶν τ ]υγχάνι τὰ ἡμέτερα ποίμνια, ";and until this day he remains in possession of our flocks"; (Edd.). Cf. Aristeas 170 βουκολίων καὶ ποιμνίων, ";herds and flocks.";
