Vocabulary of the Greek NT

generally = the ";side"; of a human being : cf. P Oxy XII. 1414.26 (A.D. 270–5) τῆς πλευρᾶς [ ]έγχ ̣ομαι, ";I have a cough from my lung"; (Edd.), and the magic P Osl I. 1.355 (iv/A.D.) ἄνυγον αὐτῆς τὴν δεξιὰν πλεύραν. The neut. πλευρόν, which, along with πλευρά, is found in the LXX (Thackeray Gr. i. p. 157), may be illustrated from the astrological P Ryl II. 63.6 (iii/A.D.) Ἄρεως πλευρών, ";the chest to Mars,"; and P Lond 121.266 (iii/A.D.) (= I. p. 93) εἰς τὸ δεξιὸν πλευρ [ ]ν μέρος. An unusual use of the word = ";vessel"; is found in P Fay 104.2 (late iii/A.D.) πλευρῶν ὑελῶν, ";glass vessels"; : see the editors’ note.
