In the so-called Coptic ointment prayer of Didache 10,8 the Coptic equivalent stinoufi does not mean 'ointment' but 'good smell'. It corresponds to Greek ευωδια which in 2Cor 2,15 is used for the good smell of Jesus that Christians are to God. This gives a good sense in the context of Did 10,8. Moreover, the expression ευχαριστεω ϑεω υπερ means 'to give thanks to God for' something. In Did 10,8 this is wrongly understood as 'to bless' or 'to consecrate'. In this meaning ευχαριστεω has an accusative object and is only used for the consecrating of the Eucharistic bread and wine.
