Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For this NT ἅπ. εἰρ.(1 Corinthians 10:25) see Magn 179.21 (ii/A.D.) παραπράσεις τε ποιήσαντα ἐν τῷ μακέλλῳ παντὸς εἴδους : cf. CP Herm I. 127 3 verso.5 ἐντὸς μακέλλου, and C. and B. ii. 549 (= p. 646) ἡ γερουσία τὰ ζυγοστάσια πρὸς τῷ μακέλλῳ ἐκ τῶν ἰδίων ποιήσαντα, where the editor notes that ";Makellon here evidently denotes the provision market, Latin macellum."; [The ζυγοστάσια was the place where weights were officially tested.] The word is Semitic in origin (cf. Heb. מִכְלָה, ";enclosure";), and appears in Ionic and Laconian; cf. Μάκελλα in Sicily. But the Lat. macellum is the most familiar form.
