Vocabulary of the Greek NT

Moeris, p. 129, δυσεντερία, θηλυκῶς, Ἀττικῶς. δυσεντέριον, Ἑλληνικῶς, settles the form in Acts 28:8, where all the uncials have the neuter. If Hobart’s long list of citations (p. 52 f.) can be trusted for this detail, Luke’s medical books all presented him with δυσεντερία (-ίη Hippocrates), and his faithfulness to the spoken Hellenistic form is the more noteworthy. We have not noticed the word in the medical documents among the papyri : it would be a fortunate chance if any of these scattered papers dealt with this particular subject.
