Vocabulary of the Greek NT

This word, which in the NT is confined to Revelation 18:12, occurs in P Leid Xx. 12 (iii/iv A.D.) (= II. p. 231) ποιεῖ δὲ οὐ μόνον ἐπὶ χάρτου ἢ διφθέρας, ἀλλὰ καὶ ἐπὶ μαρμάρου ἐστιλβωμένου, with reference to χρυσογραφία, ";writing in letters of gold."; For the adj. μαρμάρινος cf. the Mytilenean decree Cagnat IV. 45.14 ἐνχαράχθην ἐς στάλλαν μαρμαρίναν, and for μαρμαράριος, ";a marble-mason"; cf. kaibel 920ii. 7 (time of Severus) μαρμαραρίων τὸ γένος σῶζε, Σέραπι. Boisacq (p. 611) points out that the primary meaning was ";boulder,"; ";block of rock,"; as in Horn. Il. xii. 380, the meaning ";marble"; being due to the influence of μαρμαίρω, μαρμάρεος, which are not related to μάρμαρος. He connects with μάρναμαι in its original sense of ";break,"; ";crush,"; and compares the formation of rupes from rumpo.
