—Greek Word Study (Transliteration-Pronunciation Etymology & Grammar)

 1) to roll off or away

 This word is used in the Gospels to refer to the stone that was in
 front of the tomb of Jesus. In Palestine, graves were usually in a
 depression and the stone was rolled down an incline to cover the
 mouth of the tomb. For a small grave, about twenty men were required
 to roll a stone down hill to cover the door of the tomb. The Bible
 tells us that the stone covering the door of the tomb was a large
 stone. The women would have needed more men than even a full Roman
 guard of sixteen men to roll away the stone. This was a major task.
