";sponge"; (Matthew 27:48 al.) : cf. PSI V. 535.20 (iii/B.C.) σπόγγο ̣ι ̣τραχεῖς, and ib. VI. 558.7 (B.C. 257–6) σφόγγων (for form see Lob. Phryn. p. 113). In P Oxy XI. 1384, a v/A.D. collection of medical recipes, two theological extracts are inserted ";on account of their medical interest, perhaps as a kind of charm,"; say the editors; but rather, according to Moffatt (Exp T xxvii. p. 424) as ";illustrations . . . to show that specific remedies had religious justification."; In the second ";the angels of the Lord"; are represented as having gone up to heaven to seek a remedy for their eyes—.24 ff. ὀφθαλμοὺς πονο < >ντες καὶ σφόγγον κρατοῦντες, ";suffering in their eyes and holding a sponge."; MGr σφουγγάρι. In P Lond 113. 11 (a).1 (vi/vii A.D.) (= I. p. 223) a certain Apollos has the cognomen σπογγοκέφαλος (a title not in LS8).
