Vocabulary of the Greek NT

According to Hobart p. 249 θρύπτω is a medical term for the crushing of a calculus, and he thinks that the compd. may have been similarly employed, and, in pursuance of his theme, points out that it is peculiar to Luke (Acts 21:13) among Greek authors. But LS .8 cite at least one other passage, Theod. Prodr. 4. 325 συνεθρύβη. For the simplex θρύπτω see P Oxy III. 471.80 (ii/A.D.) εὔμορφον καὶ πλούσιον μειράκιον ἐθρύπτετο, where the editors render, ";this handsome and rich youth gave himself airs.";
