Strong’s Definitions [?](Strong’s Definitions Legend)
ἄκανθα ákantha, ak'-an-thah; probably from the same as G188; a thorn:—thorn.
STRONGS NT 173: ἄκανθα
ἄκανθα, -ης, , (ἀκή a point [but see in ἀκμή)];
a. a thorn bramble-bush, brier: Matthew 7:16; Luke 6:44; Hebrews 6:8; εἰς τὰς ἀκάνθας i. e. among the seeds of thorns, Matthew 13:22; Mark 4:7 [L margin: ἐπί], 18 [Tdf. ἐπί]; Luke 8:14 (Luke 8:7 ἐν μέσῳ τῶν ἀκανθῶν); ἐπὶ τὰς ἀκ., i. e. upon ground in which seeds of thorns were lying hidden, Matthew 13:7.
b. a thorny plant: στέφανον ἐξ ἀκανθῶν, Matthew 27:29; John 19:2 — for bare thorns might have caused delirium or even death; what species of plant is referred to, is not clear. Some boldly read ἀκάνθων, from ἄκανθος, acanthus, bear's foot; but the meaning of ἄκανθα is somewhat comprehensive even in secular writings cf. the classical Greek Lexicons under the word.
[On the "Crown of thorns" see BB. DD. under the word, and for references McClintock and Strong's Cyclopaedia.]
