Dear Ben,

Thank you for your further clarification. I knew that Wenham had some 
excellent material, but I do not have his commentary to hand.

One small point: neither Hartley nor I was suggesting that the modern 
disease elephantiasis is relevant here. The reference was to the 
presumably quite different disease known by the ancient Greeks as 
ELEFANTIASIS.
