I am looking for the word that would be used for a "spa
" in Hellenistic/Attic Greek. By spa
, I mean a place where women generally go to get a facial treatment
, and perhaps a hair cut, their nails, and a wax (if such was in use back then).
The word in Modern Greek, I think, is: ΛΟΥΤΡΟΠΟΛΗ
There is a word in the GNT that may have been used for a place similar to a spa: ΛΟΥΤΡΟΝ
, although this deals more with washing, bathing. I wonder if more female services were also performed at the ΛΟΥΤΡΟΝ
, such as on the face, like putting a mud pack on her face and 2 cucumber slices on each eye
. This is just a wild guess; I'm stretching here.
This may be a reply off list since I don't think it appears in biblical Greek, but I am not as familiar with the LXXs.
