A significant number of commentators point out that PLEONEXIAN has sexual
overtones to it. BGAD 667d, says "greediness, insatiableness, avarice,
covetousness, lit. a desire to have more." doesn't seem to agree.

1. Does PLEONEXIAN have this in its range of meanings? BGAD doesn't
specifically point out a sexual nuance.

2. Is the sexual understanding to be taken from its inclusion on the vice
list? How does one justify this?

3. Does the presence of the article impact the understanding of this in
terms of its contection with the rest of the verse?

4. If it does not have a sexual nuance to it, why include it?
