Dictionary

Vine's Expository Dictionary of NT Words - Two Hundred
1: διακόσιοι (Strong's #1250 — Adjective — diakosioi — dee-ak-os'-ee-oy ) occurs in Mark 6:37 ; John 6:7 ; 21:8 ; Acts 23:23 (twice); 27:37, "two hundred (threescore and sixteen);" Revelation 11:3 , "(a thousand) two hundred (and threescore);" Song of Solomon 12:6 .
Note: In Acts 27:37 , some ancient authorities read "about threescore and sixteen souls" (RV, margin). The confusion was quite natural when the word diakosioi was not written in full but represented by one Greek letter. The larger number is by no means improbable: Josephus sailed for Rome in A.D. 63 in a ship which had 600 on board (Life, ch. 3).
