Vocabulary of the Greek NT

Thayer seems to have overlooked the citation from Eupolis (v/B.C.) given in LS.8, so that his oldest profane citation is later than LXX, and has moreover a different sense, ";biting."; He does not however include it in his list of ";Biblical"; words, so that no harm is done by the oversight.
