ἄτοπος, ἄτοπον (τόπος), out of place; not befitting, unbecoming (so in Greek writings from Thucydides down; very often in Plato); in later Greek in an ethical sense, improper, wicked: Luke 23:41 (ἄτοπον τί πράσσειν, as in Job 27:6; 2 Macc. 14:23); Acts 25:5 L T Tr WH; (the Sept. for אָוֶן. Job 4:8; Job 11:11, etc. Josephus, Antiquities 6, 5, 6; Plutarch, de aud. poët. c. 3 φαῦλα and ἄτοπα); of men: 2 Thessalonians 3:2 (ἀτοποι καί πονηροί; Luth.unartig, more correctly unrighteous ((iniquus), A. V. unreasonable, cf. Ellicott at the passage)). inconvenient, harmful: Acts 28:6 μηδέν ἄτοπον εἰς αὐτόν γινόμενον, no injury, no harm coming to him (Thucydides 2, 49; Josephus, Antiquities 11, 5, 2; Herodian, 4, 11, 7 (4, Bekker edition)).
