STROFAS LOGWN is also used in Wisdom 8:8.
The translation from the King James Version Apocrypha for Wisdom 8:8
is: "If a man desire much experience, she knoweth things of old, and
conjectureth aright what is to come: she knoweth the subtilties of
speeches (STROFAS LOGWN), and can expound dark sentences: she
foreseeth signs and wonders, and the events of seasons and times."
Sirach 39:2 uses the expression STROFAIS PARABOLWN, which is
translated as "subtil parables" in the King James Version Apocrypha.
The glosses given by J. Lust, et. al in their Greek-English Lexicon
of the Septuagint for STROPH is: turning (metaph.), subtlety,
literary craft (of words)
