Vocabulary of the Greek NT

As we have no fresh light from our sources, it lies outside our sphere to discuss the uses of this number in the NT, but reference may be made to the notes by Allen on Mark 16:9, and by Moffatt (in EGT) on Revelation 5:1. Note also Acts 12:10 D κατέβησαν τοὺς ζ ̄ βαθμούς and Ev. Petr. 8 ἐπέχρισαν ἑπτὰ σφραγῖδας. MGr ἑφτά shows the aspirate in compensation for the loss (in pronunciation) of the rough breathing.
