Our sources throw no special light upon this word which in the NT is found only in the Synoptics = ";parable,"; ";similitude,"; and bis in Heb (9.9, 11.19) = ";figure,"; ";type."; For Hebrews 11:19, where Isaac’s restoration was to Abraham a sort of resurrection, Moffatt (ICC ad I.) cites Aelian Var. Hist. iii. 33 describing Satyrus the flautist—τρόπον τινὰ τὴν τέχνην ἐκφαυλίζων παραβολῇ τῇ πρὸς φιλοσοφίαν. According to Quintil. v. II. 23 ";παραβολή, quam Cicero collationem vocat, longtus res quae comparentur repetere solet."; See further, especially for the Biblical usage, Hatch, Essays, p. 64 ff.
In P Flor III. 384.63 (v/A.D. ?) τὰς το ̣υ ̣̑ μηχανοστασίου παραβολάς, the editor understands π. as = ";riparazioni.";
