IN early Koine Greek 'AΠo∑keγh, a new formation attested first in the
third century B.C., undergoes a remarkable semantic development. The
evidence for this in papyri and Koine authors has already been noticed,
but the LXX examples of the word, which are quite numerous, have
received little attention. My purpose here is to examine the word in the
LXX in the light of the contemporary usage. It will be seen that a
knowledge of the latter helps considerably in establishing the meaning
in the LXX. This word provides a good illustration of the importance
of investigating the LXX vocabulary in conjunction with the vocabulary
of its time.
