STRONGS NT 3458: μύλος

μύλος, μύλου, ((Latinmola; English mill, meal)); 1. a mill-stone ((Anthol. etc.)): Revelation 18:21 (L WH μύλινος, which see); μύλος ὀνικός, Matthew 18:6; Mark 9:42 L T Tr WH; Luke 17:2 Rec.; a large mill consisted of two stones, an upper and an under one; the nether stone was stationary, but the upper one was turned by an ass, whence the name μύλος ὀνικός.

2. equivalent to μύλη, a mill ((Diodorus, Strabo, Plutarch)): Matthew 24:41 L T Tr WH; φωνή μύλου, the noise made by a mill, Revelation 18:22.


Probably ultimately from the base of molis (through the idea of hardship); a "mill", i.e. (by implication), a grinder (millstone) -- millstone.
