primarily "a spearhead," then, "a lance or spear," occurs in Jhn 19:34; some texts have it in Mat 27:49. As to Jhn 19:29, there is an old conjecture, mentioned by Field (Notes on the Trans. of the NT), to the effect that the sponge was put on a spear (hussos, "a javelin," the Roman pilum, instead of hussopos, "hyssop").
