This adj. = ";house-worker,"; which is read in Titus 2:5 א* ACD*G, is pronounced by Grimm-Thayer ";not found elsewhere,"; but Field (Notes, p. 220) refers to Soranus of Ephesus, a medical writer (not earlier than ii/A.D.) ";from whose work Περὶ γυναικείων παθῶν (published at Berlin 1838) Boissonade quotes οἰκουργὸν καὶ καθέδριον (";sedentary";) διάγειν βίον, where οἰκουρόν would suit at least equally well."; For the verb οἰκουργέω see Clem.
