STRONGS NT 4454: πῶλος

πῶλος, πωλου, (in classical Greek also) (Latinpullus, O. H. G. folo, English foal; perhaps allied with παῖς; cf. Curtius, § 387);

1. a colt, the young of the horse: so very often from Homer down.

2. universally, a young creature: Aelian v. h. 4, 9; specifically, of the young of various animals; in the N. T. of a young ass, an ass's colt: Matthew 21:2, 5, 7; Mark 11:2,(3 L marginal reading),4,5,7; Luke 19:30, 33, 35; John 12:15 (also in Geoponica); the Sept. several times for עַיִר; for יַעֲלָה a female ibex, Proverbs 5:19.


Apparently a primary word; a "foal" or "filly", i.e. (specially), a young ass -- colt.
