Thayer's Expanded Definition

Ἀπφίᾳ, Ἀπφιας, , Apphia, name of a woman: Philemon 1:2 (Apparently a Phrygian name expressive of endearment, cf. Suïdae Lex., Gaisf. edition, col. 534 a. Ἀπφα: ἀδελφῆς καί ἀδελφοῦ ὑποκόρισμα, etc. cf. ἀπφύς. See fully in Lightfoot's Commentary on Colossians and Philemon, p. 306ff.)

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

To the examples from the inscriptions of this Phrygian proper name given by Lightfoot Colossians.6 p. 306 f. add Perg II. 513 Ἰουλίαν Ἀπφίαν Λικιαννήν, and C. and B. no. 309 (ii. p. 470—Apamea, pagan) Ἀπφία Παπίου μήτηρ. In JBL xxvii. pt. ii. p. 145 Hatch cites three instances of the form Ἀφία from PAS iii. 482, 508, 594 (Pisidia and Phrygia). In noting that the name is not to be found in the Magnesian inscriptions Thieme (p. 39) quotes K. Buresch Aus Lydien, Leipzig, 1898, p. 44, to the effect : ";Der Name (Ἁφίας) gehört einer grossen in W(est)-Kleinasien und besonders N(ord)-Lydien sehr verbreiteten Namenfamilie an, deren Mitglieder mit ππ, πφ, φφ, φ geschrieben erscheinen."; See also Radermacher Gr. p. 40 n.1, who supports from an early Lycian inscr. the spelling Ἀφφία (found in D).
