Vocabulary of the Greek NT

With the use of ὁλοκαύτωμα to denote a victim the whole of which is burned (Mark 12:33, Hebrews 10:6; Hebrews 10:8) cf. Oslr 1305.6 (A.D. 4) ὁλοπυρεῖται ἄρτοι, apparently with reference to loaves of unground wheat, or wheat boiled whole, and the corresponding compound ὁλοκάρπωμα (see Deissmann BS p. 138). Phrynichus mentions in his Appendix p. 51 (see Lob. Phryn. p. 524) the verbs μηροκαυτέω, ἱεροκαυτέω, ὁλοκαυτέω, also (p. 568) the form ὁλοκαυτίζω.
