Vocabulary of the Greek NT

P Magd 8.6 (B.C. 218) δρέπανον θεριστικὸν οὗ τιμὴ (δραχμαὶ) β ̄, ";a sickle for reaping worth 2 drachmae,"; P Petr II. 33.A. .16 καὶ φελίου καὶ δρεπάνου. In two (apparently Jewish or Jewish Christian) inscrr. from Phrygia we find δρέπανον used in connexion with an imprecation—C. and B. ii. p. 565, no. 466, ἐὰν δέ τις αὐτῶν μὴ φοβηθῇ τούτων τῶν καταρῶν, τὸ ἀρᾶς δρέπανον εἰσέλθοιτο εἰς τὰς οἰκήσις αὐτῶν καὶ μηδίναν ἐνκαταλείψετο : cf. ib. p. 652, no. 563. MGr δρεπάνι.
