(Ζώσιμος; Zṓsimos). [German version] [1] Of Thasos, epigrammatist, probably between 150 BC and AD 50 Z. of Thasos. Greek epigrammatist, whose works are probably to be dated between 150 BC and AD 50: three (Anth. Pal 6,183-185; 6,15 is also ascribed to him, alternatively to Antipater [8] of Sidon) are variations on the theme of 'dedication to Pan' from the view of a hunter, a bird catcher and a fisherman (cf. Satyrius). Another deals with the unusual theme of a shield saving its owner who uses it as a raft (Anth. Pal. 9,40, cf. Diocles [10]). Albiani, Maria Grazia (Bologna) Bibliography FGE 104-…

(Μάρκος; Márkos). I. Greek [German version] [I 1] The Evangelist, [1] (Lat. Marcus). The author of the second Gospel (Mk) could be a missionary (Iohannes) M. who is often mentioned in the NT especially in close association with Paulus (Acts 12:12:25; Phm 24 among others) (for example, for the first time Papias around AD 130, see Euseb. Hist. eccl. 3,39,15). The fact that evidence of a closeness to Paul's theology can barely be found [3] is an argument against this identification, while the straightforwardness of this assumption supports it, as the biographical details and the accepted period when the work was written coincide [1]. The author, who wrote in Greek, appears to have a command of Aramaic as well as of Latin. Whilst the Latin words (e.g. Mk 6:27; 15:15) could indicate that Rome was the place where the work was written, the Aramaic terms (e.g. 5:41; 7:34; 15:34) as well as the explanations of Jewish customs (e.g. 7:3f.; 14:12) demonstrate that the author is acquainted with Palestinian Judaism. Presumably M. writes as a Jewish follower of Jesus for addressees who are primarily non-Jewish but believe in Christ. Mk is dated around AD 70 by most scholars although suggestions for an earlier dating around AD 40 have never been completely silenced [6]. Since the 19th/20th cents. Mk is mostly regarded as the earliest Gospel. The conclusion, which is missing from notable textual eviden…

[German version] I. Greek (Μαρκελλῖνος; Markellînos). [German version] [I 1] Greek author of a treatise on pulses, 2nd cent. AD?, [1] Greek author of a treatise on pulses. His reference to followers of Archigenes suggests the late 1st or 2nd cent. AD as the earliest date of its composition. A more precise dating would be possible if he were the author of a recipe quoted by Galen (De compositione medicamentorum secundum locos 7,5 = 13,90 K.) from Andromachus [5] the Younger, but the identification is uncertain. M.'s …
