STRONGS NT 4949: Συροφοινίσσα

Συροφοινίσσα (so Rec.; a form quite harmonizing with the analogies of the language, for as Κίλιξ forms the feminine Κιλισσα, Θράξ the feminine Θρᾷσσα, ἄναξ the feminine ἄνασσα, so the feminine of Φοῖνιξ is always, by the Greeks, called Φοίνισσα), Συροφοινίκισσα (so L T WH; hardly a pure form, and one which must be derived from Φοινίκη; cf. Fritzsche on Mark, p. 296f; Winer's Grammar, 95 (91)), Συραφοινίκισσα (Griesbach; a form which conflicts with the law of composition), Συραφοινικισσης, (Tr WH marginal reading Σύρα Φοινίκισσα), a Syrophoenician woman, i. e. of Syrophoenice by race, that is, from the Phoenice forming a part of Syria (Συρο being prefixed for distinction's sake, for there were also Λιβυφοινικες, i. e. the Carthaginians. The Greeks included both Phoenicia and Palestine under the name Συρία; hence, Συρία Παλαιστινη in Herodotus 3, 91; 4, 39; Justin Martyr, Apology 1:1; and Φοινίκη Συρία, Diodorus 19, 93; Συροφοινικη, Justin Martyr, dialog contra Trypho,

c. 78, p. 305 a.): Mark 7:26 (cf. B. D. under the word ). (The masculine Συροφοῖνιξ is found in Lucian, concil. deor. c. 4; (Syrophoenix in Juvenal, sat. 8, 159 (cf. 160)).)
