Thayer's Expanded Definition

Ναθαναήλ, (נְתַנְאֵל, gift of God), Nathanael, an intimate disciple of Jesus: John 1:45-49 (); . lie is commonly thought to be identical with Bartholomew, because as in John 1:45 () he is associated with Philip, so in Matthew 10:3; Mark 3:18; Luke 6:14 Bartholomew is; Nathanael, on this supposition, was his personal name, and Bartholomew a title derived from his father (see Βαρθολομαῖος). But in Acts 1:13 Thomas is placed between Philip and Bartholomew; (see B. D. under the word ). Späth in the Zeitschr. f. wissensch. Theologie, 1868, pp. 168ff, 309ff (again 1880, pp. 78ff) acutely but vainly tries to prove that the name was formed by the Fourth Evangelist symbolically to designate 'the disciple whom Jesus loved' (see Ἰωάννης, 2).

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

ξέστης, a Roman dry measure (sextarius), rather less than a pint : cf. Ostr 1186.2 (Rom.) οἴνου ξέσται ιβ, and see Wilcken Ostr. i. p. 762 f., Hultsch Archiv iii. p. 438. In the NT (Mark 7:4) the word is used rather = ";cup"; or ";pitcher,"; whether holding a sextarius or not : cf. P Oxy VI. 921.23 (iii/A.D.) ξέσται β ̄, ";two cups,"; ib. 109.21 (iii/iv A.D.) ξέσται χαλκοῦ γ ̄. In an inventory of church property P Grenf II. 111.6 (v/vi A.D.) ποτήρ (ια) ἀργυρ () γ ̄. ξέστ (ης) ἀργυρ (οῦς) α ̄, ξέστης is apparently = ";paten"; : see the editors’ note. It should be added that Moulton (Gr. ii. p. 155) has difficulty in believing that ξέστης is really a Latin word.
