Dor. Δᾶλος, ἡ, Delos, Od. 6.162, Pi. Fr. 87, etc.: prov., ᾄδεις ὥσπερ εἰς Δ. πλέων, from the careless joviality of the Δηλιασταί (q. v.), Zen. 2.37. (Expld. from δῆλος, because of the legend that it became visible on a sudden, Arist. Fr. 488, EM 264.22; but cf. sq.)

Thayer's Expanded Definition

δῆλος, δηλη, δῆλον (from Homer down), clear, evident, manifest: Matthew 26:73; δῆλον namely, ἐστιν it is manifest, evident, followed by ὅτι (4 Macc. 2:7; Xenophon, an. 1, 3, 9; others): 1 Corinthians 15:27 (here some would take the words adverbially and parenthetically, i. e. δηλονότι, manifestly, cf. Winer's Grammar, § 64, 2 a.); Galatians 3:11; 1 Timothy 6:7 (here L T Tr WH omit δῆλον). [SYNONYMS: δῆλος, φανερός: δῆλος, evident, what is known and understood, φανερός, manifest, as opposed to what is concealed or invisible; δῆλος points rather to inner perception, φανερός to outward appearance. Cf. Schmidt, chapter 129.]

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

CP Herm 6.5, a petition addressed to an Emperor, has in a fragmentary context ]ττ [ω ]μενοι καθ᾽ ἕκαστον τω ̣̑[ν λο ]γ ̣ισ [μ ]ῶν δῆλός ἐστιν ἀριθμὸς καὶ λειτουρ [γιῶν . P Oxy VIII. 1101.12 (A.D. 367–70) ὅτι δὲ κεκώλυται παρὰ τοῖς νόμοις τοῦτο , δῆλον , ";that this is forbidden by the law is clear"; (Ed.). Ib. X. 1264.17 (A.D. 272) πρὸς τὸ πᾶσι δῆλα εἶναι τὰ ὑπόντα μοι . . . δίκαια . P Thead 19.10 (iv/A.D.) ἕρμαιον δηλονότι ἡ [γη ]σαμένι (i.e. -η ) τὸν θάνατον τοῦ πατρός μου . P Flor I. 36.28 (iv/A.D., beginning) ἢ δῆλον ὅτι κιν [δυνεύσι εἰς τὸ ] σὸν ἄχραντον δικα [στ ]ήριον . Ib. III. 367.11 (iii/A.D.) ἀλ ]λὰ δηλονότι πλούτῳ γαυρωθείς κτλ . BGU III. 893.39 (ii/iiiA.D.) ἐγέν ]ε ̣το δὲ δῆλον τότ ̣[ε . . ., ib. 902.15 (A.D. 168–9) ἐξ ὧ ̣ν δῆλ (ον ) γ (ίνεται ) ὀφει ̣λειν κτλ . The word is by no means common : we have quoted almost all the instances we can find in papyri. The adverb appears in P Oxy III. 474.20 (? A.D. 184) εἰ δὲ μὴ δήλως [καὶ ἐμ ]προθέσμως τὰ δέοντα . . . MGr has δηλονότι ";that is to say, viz."; : the combination grows steadily commoner during the Byzantine age.
