  1. So take up:
    tén panopli’an toù Theoù . .
    ton thyreon tés pisteôs . .

    The writer of Eph 6: 13 et seq wasn’t thinking of Captain America’s round Macedonian (h)OPLON. Paul the proud, loyal Roman Citizen, uses the Roman item, vital in tactical formations like Testudo, called by Greek speakers (most of Jerusalem and all of Tarsus) by their word for DOOR.
