a mill-house, the place where grain was ground.
Cognate: 3459 mýlōn – a mill; a building (mill) used to operate a grinding mill-stone (it occurs only in Mt 24:41). See 3458 (mlos).
The old-styled, Eastern hand-mill required two people. One person dropped a handful of grain on a lower stone, while the other rubbed another stone back-and-forth on it to grind the grain.
[An ancient millstone (hand-mill) was generally turned by two women (see also 229 /alḗthō, and Ex 11:5). "There was a handle near the edge of the upper stone" (WP, 1, 194,95).]
