	Some of those examples seem to be more to the point than others.
  ANDROKOITHS and ADELFOKOITIA, for instance seem to be most analogous to the
term ARSENOKIOTHS.  Among those somewhat related analogically to the latter

	The verb ANDROKOITEW which L&S defines "sleep with a man" may be found in
context in _Berliner griechische Urkunden_, (Berlin, 1895), 1058.30 dated to
the first Century B.C. (i B.C).  It is also used by Aetius Medicus (vi A.D.)
1.142.  The context, in these cases would have to dictate how we understand
these terms.  I don't find ADELFOKOITIA in L&S, but, if it is to be found in
extant literature, its meaning seems clear enough.  KLEYIKOITHS is
translated, "seeking illicit love," and carries the somewhat cryptic
reference in L&S: "Ismenias ap. Ps.-Callist. 1.46" which I was unable to
decipher.  DEUTEROKOITEW is translated in L&S as simply, "to have a
bedfellow," and the reference given is Athenaeus Grammaticus (ii/iii A.D.)
13.584b.  POLUKOITOS and POLUKOITEW (I found the verbal form as well) L&S
translate as "lying (or to lie, in the case of the verb) with many women or
men."  References to both are found in Vettius Valens Astrologus (ii A.D.)
118.5 and 75.9, al.

	By adding to these DOULOKOITHS  and MHTROKIOTHS  as mentioned above (The
latter, BTW, is attested from the fifth century B.C.), we should have enough
material to get a clearer idea of the meaning of ARSENOKOITHS in 1Cor. 6:9 if
we could clarify the pertinent contexts.
