σμάραγδος is often regarded as = ";rock crystal"; (see Hastings’ DB iv. p. 620), but, as Swete has shown ad Revelation 21:19, is to be identified rather with an ";emerald"; or other ";green stone."; The word occurs in the magic P Lond 46.228 (iv/A.D.) (= I. p. 72) εἰς λίθον σμάραγδον : cf. Aristeas 66 ἀνθράκων τε καὶ σμαράγδων, ";carbuncles and emeralds."; In Sirach 35:6 we have the form ζσμαράγδου (cf. Thackeray Gr. i. p. 108). In Menander Fragm. p. 108, No. 373 μάραγδος is used. For the derivation of this foreign borrowing, see Boisacq p. 609.
