Notes

The database contains 500 political and legal terms found in the Greek Bible (Septuagint). For each word, its appearances in the Septuagint and contemporary material are recorded, the earliest dated source is marked, and a discussion is provided of its distribution and significance. Each word is classified by morphology, grammatical type and semantic field.
