STRONGS NT 4428: πτύσσω

πτύσσω: 1 aorist participle πτύξας; in classical Greek from Homer down; to fold together, roll up: τό βιβλίον, Luke 4:20 (A. V. closed); see ἀναπτύσσω (and cf. Schlottmann in Riehm under the word Schrift; Strack: in Herzog edition 2 under the word Sehreibkunst, etc. Compare: ἀναπτύσσω.)


Probably akin to petannumi (to spread; and thus apparently allied to petomai through the idea of expansion, and to ptuo through that of flattening; compare pateo); to fold, i.e. Furl a scroll -- close.

see GREEK petomai

see GREEK pateo
