Revelation 11:8: πλατεία (Pilate?)

Post by Giuseppe » Thu Dec 31, 2020 10:16 am

καὶ τὸ πτῶμα αὐτῶν ἐπὶ τῆς πλατείας τῆς πόλεως τῆς μεγάλης, ἥτις καλεῖται πνευματικῶς Σόδομα καὶ Αἴγυπτος, ὅπου καὶ ὁ Κύριος αὐτῶν ἐσταυρώθη

(Revelation 11:8)

Repeated more and more times,

"the Lord was crucified in the πλατεία of Jerusalem"

...a confusion could rise (easily?) with:

"the Lord was crucified in the Jerusalem of Pilate"

Note that πλατεία has PLT in it.
