Dear Carl in the mountains,
Whoops, I should have checked in LSJ before quoting BAGD.
Said TABLA is not an item of clothing at all but as
you suggest related to Latin Tabula. LSJ gives the
same quote from Wilcken, dates it ii/iii AD, and says
"mummy-token" , (which must be a kind of early dog
tag for identification in the afterlife?) so not
much relevant to the KATA THS KEFALHS of Plutarch
and Paul. (Which comedy texts did you have in mind?)
BTW liked the "circular dictionary" comment on John.
Have a good break if that's what it is!
