Vocabulary of the Greek NT

";shade,"; is used of the shadow on a sun-dial in Preisigke 358.4 (iii/B.C.) μεθίσταται τὸ ἄκρον τῆς σκιᾶς ἐν ἡμέραις τριάκοντα. Other exx. of the word are P Oxy VIII. 1088.43 (medical receipt—early i/A.D.) ἐν τῆι σκιᾷ ξηράνας, ";dry in the shade,"; and OGIS 201.20 (vi/A.D.) οὐκ ἀφῶ αὐτοὺς καθεσθῆναι εἰς τὴς σκιάν, εἰ μὴ (= ἀλλὰ) ὑπὸ ἡλίου ἔξω.

In BGU IV. 1141.41 (B.C. 13) Schubart thinks that σκιά is perhaps used in the sense of an ";umbrella,"; but Olsson (Papyrusbriefe, p. 52) prefers the meaning ";a variegated border,"; as in Syll 653 (=.3 736).20, .24 (B.C. 92) : cf. also P Oxy VI. 921.15 (iii/A.D.) σινδόνια σκιωτά, ";cambrics with variegated borders"; rather than ";with shaded stripes,"; and the editors’ suggestion ad l. that σικιωτεν in P Tebt II. 413.11 is perhaps for σκιωτόν.

With Hebrews 10:1 cf. Preisigke 344 Διόδωρος σκιὰν Ἀντιφίλου ἐποίησ [εν, and Vett. Val. p. 248.22 with reference to a picture which shows σκιὰν ἔργου καὶ ἀληθείας. Preisigke (Wörterb. s.v.) cites the amulet P Masp II. 67188.5 (vi/A.D.) for σκιά = ";an evil spirit";—πα ̣ρ [α ]ϕ ̣υ ̣λ ̣αξόν με ἀπ ̣ὸ παν ̣τὸς π ̣ονηροῦ πν (εύμ)ατος, ὑπόταξόν μο ̣υ ̣ πᾶν πν (εῦμ)α δαιμονίων φθειρ ̣οποιῶν. . . καὶ πᾶσα ̣ σκιά (l. πᾶσαν σκιάν).

For the verb σκιάζω cf. P Cornell 50.10 (i/A.D.) ἵνα αἱ ἄμπελοι μὴ σκιάζωνται, and BGU I. 33.14 (ii/iii A.D.) τὰ δὲ οἰνάρια σκίασον, ἐὰν καιρὸς γένηται. For σκιατροφέω see Musonius p. 59.9. The subst. σκιασμός occurs in Vett. Val. p. 210.5. MGr ἴσκιος, ";shade,"; ";shadow,"; has a prothetic vowel : cf. s.v. στῆθος.
