Vocabulary of the Greek NT

κρύπτη (κρυπτή) in the sense of ";vault,"; ";cellar,"; as in Luke 11:33 (RV), occurs in PSI V. 547.18 (iii/B.C.), where in a list of parts of a building (doors, windows etc.) we read of τὴν κρύπτην ὁμοίαν τῶι κονιάματι, ";the cellar similarly plastered"; : cf. γρύτης, perhaps a vulgar Egyptian form of κρύπτης, in ib. 546.3 (iii/B.C.), where see the editor’s note.
