Strong’s Greek Lexicon

of Latin origin; (little; but remotely from a derivative of , meaning the same); Paulus, the name of a Roman and of an apostle:—Paul, Paulus.

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.
