Strong’s Definitions [?](Strong’s Definitions Legend)
θηριομαχέω thēriomachéō, thay-ree-om-akh-eh'-o; from a compound of G2342 and G3164; to be a beast-fighter (in the gladiatorial show), i.e. (figuratively) to encounter (furious men):—fight with wild beasts.
STRONGS NT 2341: θηριομαχέω
θηριομαχέω, -ῶ: 1 aorist ἐθηριομάχησα; (θηριομάχος); to fight with wild beasts (Diodorus 3, 43, 7; Artemidorus Daldianus, oneir. 2, 54; 5, 49); εἰ ἐθηριομάχησα ἐν Ἐφέσῳ, 1 Corinthians 15:32 — these words some take literally, supposing that Paul was condemned to fight with wild beasts; others explain them tropically of a fierce contest with brutal and ferocious men (so θηριομαχεῖν in Ignatius ad Rom. 5, [etc.]; οἴοις θηρίοις μαχόμεθα says Pompey, in the Appendix, bell. 104:2, 61; see θηρίον). The former opinion encounters the objection that Paul would not have omitted this most terrible of all perils from the catalogue in 2 Corinthians 11:23ff.
