Strong’s Definitions [?](Strong’s Definitions Legend)
πιστικός pistikós, pis-tik-os'; from G4102; trustworthy, i.e. genuine (unadulterated):—spike-(nard).
STRONGS G4101:
πιστικός, πιστικη, πιστικον (πιστός), pertaining to belief;
a. having the power of persuading, skillful in producing belief: Plato, Gorgias, p. 455 a.
b. trusty, faithful, that can be relied on: γυνή πιστικη καί οἰκουρός καί πειθομενη τῷ ἀνδρί, Artemidorus Daldianus, oneir. 2, 32; often so in Cedrenus (also (of persons) in Epiphanius, John Moschus, Sophronius of Damascus; cf. Sophocles' Lexicon, under the word); of commodities equivalent to δόκιμος, genuine, pure, unadulterated: so νάρδος πιστικη (but A. V. spike- (i. e. spiked) nard, after the nardi spicati of the Vulg. [but see Rev. Wm. Houghton in Proc. of Soc. of Bibl. Arcaeol. Jan. 10, 1888]. (in Mark)), Mark 14:3; John 12:3 (for nard was often adulterated; see Pliny, h. n. 12,26; Dioscorides (?) de mater. med. 1, 6 and 7); hence, metaphorically, τό πιστικον τῆς καινῆς διαθήκης κρᾶμα, Eusebius, dem. evang. 9, 8 (p. 439 d.). Cf. the full discussion of this word in Fritzsche on Mark, p. 596ff; Lücke on John 12:3, p. 494ff; Winer's Grammar, 97f (92f); (especially Dr. James Morison on Mark, the passage cited).
