This familiar LXX and NT word is fairly attested = ";murmur"; in the vernacular, as in P Petr II. 9(3).9 (B.C. 241–39) τὸ πλήρωμα γογγύζει φάμενοι ἀδικεῖσθαι , ";the gang (of workmen) are murmuring, saying that they are being wronged."; In the curious papyrus P Oxy I. 33iii. 14 (late ii/A.D.), describing an interview between the Emperor (? Marcus Aurelius) and a rebel, a veteran present interposes with the remark, κύριε , κάθῃ , Ῥωμαῖοι γονγύζο [υσ ]ι , ";Lord, while you are sitting in judgement, the Romans are murmuring."; The verb is MGr. Thumb, Hellen. p. 215, discusses this and other alleged Ionic loans to the later Attic and the Κοινή : see under γογγυσμός .
