Vocabulary of the Greek NT

We have no ex. of this subst. = ";heat,"; as in Acts 28:3 (see Hobart, p. 287 f. for medical exx.), but it is common in connexion with public ";baths,"; e.g. P Oxy I. 54.14 (A.D. 201) εἰς ἐπιμέλειαν ἐπισκευῆς καὶ κατασκευῆς Ἁδριανῶν θερμῶν, ";to superintend the repairs and fixtures of the baths of Hadrian"; (Edd.), ib. III. 473.5 (A.D. 138–160) τῆ [ς ] τῶν μειζόνων θερμῶν ἐπιμελείας, ib. VI. 896.8 (A.D. 316), τοῦ εὐτυχῶς ἐπισκευαζομένου Τραιανῶν Ἁδ ̣ρ ̣ι ̣α ̣ν ̣ῶν θερμῶν δημοσίου τῆς αὐτῆς πόλεως βαλανίου. With the rare form θέρμη Rutherford (NP, p. 198) compares κάκη and λεύκη, λεύκαι being applied to a form of leprosy (like the English term ";the blues";) : so in MGr ζέστη = ";heat,"; ψύχρα = ";cold weather.";
