(Strong's #1101 — Noun Neuter — glossokomon — gloce-sok'-om-on )

from glossa, "a tongue," and komeo, "to tend," was, firstly, "a case" in which to keep the mouthpiece of wind instruments; secondly, "a small box" for any purpose, but especially a "casket or purse," to keep money in. It is used of the "bag" which Judas carried, John 12:6 ; 13:29 ; in the Sept. of 2 Chronicles 24:8,10 , used of the "box" appointed by King Joash for offerings for the repair of the Temple.

(Strong's #905 — Noun Neuter — ballantion — bal-an'-tee-on )

from ballo, "to cast," "a money-box or purse," is found in Luke's Gospel, four times, Luke 10:4 ; 12:33 (AV, "bag"); 22:35,36. See PURSE.

Note: Zone, "a gridle or belt," also served as "a purse for money," Matthew 10:9 ; Mark 6:8 . See GIRDLE.
