Liddell-Scott-Jones Definitions


flavour or drug with myrrh, ἐσμυρνισμένος οἶνος Ev.Mark 15:23 .

2. intr., to be like myrrh, Dsc. 1.66.

Thayer's Expanded Definition

σμυρνίζω: (σμύρνα, which see);

1. intransitive, to be like myrrh (Dioscorides (?) 1, 79).

2. to mix and so flavor with myrrh: οἶνος ἐσμυρνισμενος (perfect passive participle) wine (A. V. mingled) with myrrh (Vulg. murratum vinum), i. e. flavored or (Pliny, h. n. 14, 15) made fragrant with myrrh: Mark 15:23. But since the ancients used to infuse myrrh into wine in order to give it a more agreeable fragrance and flavor, we must in this matter accept Matthew's account (Matthew 27:34, viz. 'mingled with gall') as by far the more probable; (but see χολή, 2).

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

";pillar"; : BGU VII. 1713.4 (ii/iii A.D.) στυ ̣λ ̣ων μονολ ̣ι ̣θων ̣, P Giss I. 69.13 (A.D. 118–19) διὰ τὴν τοῦ πεντηκοντάποδος στύλου καταγωγὴν πλεῖστα κτήνη ἔχομεν, and BGU IV. 1028.13 (ii/A.D.) πρὸς χρείαν τῶν τοὺς στύλ [ους ἐ ]ργαζ [ο ]μένων. See also the diminutives in P Iand 11.8 (iii/A.D.) κόμισον δὲ ἓν στυλάριν and OGIS 332.9 (B.C. 138–132) ἐπὶ στυλίδος μαρμαρίνης. A new adv. στυλοειδῶς, ";in the form of a pillar,"; is found in Epicurus Ep. II. 104 (ed. Bailey).

The metaph. usage of στύλος, as in Galatians 2:9, is common to classical, Jewish, and Christian writers : see Suicer Thes. s.v.
