<< Running a search in the Logos program, I found what I consider a 
remarkable statistic:
Occurrence of "Hermas" in BAGD: 4408 in 1761 >>

I'm impressed that you have an electronic edition of BAGD (I didn't know 
that such existed). But I'm puzzled by the expression: "4408 in 1761", what 
does this mean?

As an aside, I'll note that Alsop's index to BAGD is limited to only the 
canonical NT, the "Other Early Christian Literature" was ignored.
