Strong’s Greek Lexicon

from G1497 and the base of G3000; an image-(servant or) worshipper (literally or figuratively):—idolater.

Owing to changes in the enumeration while in progress, there were no words left for numbers 2717 and 3203–3302, which were therefore silently dropped out of the vocabulary and references as redundant.
