Strong’s Greek Lexicon

from a compound of G4810 and a derivative of G5316; to be a fig-informer (reporter of the law forbidding the exportation of figs from Greece), “sycophant”, i.e. (genitive and by extension) to defraud (exact unlawfully, extort):—accuse falsely, take by false accusation.

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.
