The special meaning of a periodic ";change"; of a heavenly body which this word has in its only NT occurrence (James 1:17), is illustrated by Hort ad l. from Dion Cass. lxxvi. 13, where it is said of the Emperor Severus in the North of Scotland—τήν τε τοῦ ἡλίου παράλλαξιν καὶ τὸ τῶν ἡμερῶν, τῶν τε νύκτων καὶ τῶν θερινῶν καὶ τῶν χειμερινῶν μέγεθος ἀκριβέστατα κατεφώρασεν. In Aristeas 75 παραλλαγή is used of stones arranged alternately—λίθων ἑτέρων παρ᾽ ἑτέρους, τοῖς γένεσι παραλλαγὴν ἐχόντων. For the verb cf. Preisigke 4947.4 (love-charm—iii/A.D.) εἰς τὸ παραλλαγῆναι τὴν ψυχὴν αὐτῆς, Theophr. H.P. v. i. 3 αἱ πέψεις τῶν καρπῶν παραλλάττουσι, ";times of ripeness vary.";
