Strong’s Greek Lexicon

akin to the base of G2753; to “call” (properly, aloud, but used in a variety of applications, dir. or otherwise):—bid, call (forth), (whose, whose sur-)name (was [called]).

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.
