Genesis 37:36

(37:35) Οἱ δὲ Μαδιηναῖοι ἀπέδοντο τὸν Ἰωσὴφ εἰς Αἴγυπτον τῷ Πετεφρῇ τῷ σπάδοντι Φαραὼ, ἀρχιμαγείρῳ.

(37:35) Then the Madienites sold Ioseph into Egypt to Petephre the eunuch of Pharao, chief butcher.

והמדנים מכרו אתו אל־מצרים לפוטיפר סריס פרעה שׂר הטבחים׃


* Πετεφρῇ | Πετρεφῇ
* chief butcher/executioner OR chief cook OR head chef. Ἀρχιμάγειρος – from ΜΑΓ, root of μάσσω (q. v.), because baking bread was the business of the ancient cook.
