βάσανος básanos, bas'-an-os; perhaps remotely from the same as G939 (through the notion of going to the bottom); a touch-stone, i.e. (by analogy) torture:—torment.
STRONGS NT 931: βάσανος
βάσανος, -ου, , [Curtius, p. 439];
a. the touchstone [called also basanite, Latin lapis Lydius], by which gold and other metals are tested.
b. the rack or instrument of torture by which one is forced to divulge the truth.
c. torture, torment, acute pains: used of the pains of disease, Matthew 4:24; of the torments of the wicked after death, ἐν βασάνοις ὑπάρχειν, Luke 16:23 (Wis. 3:1; 4 Macc. 13:14); hence, τόπος τῆς βασάνου is used of Gehenna, Luke 16:28. (In Greek writings from [Theognis], Pindar down.)
