That's written in Genesenius' Lexicon:

I wonder how the Colossians name connects to the epistle. It means Monstrosities. Though unrelated it reminds me of the Colossus of Rhodes. The island erected a statue of the sun god Helios and called it Colossus when Cyprus failed to invade the island after the besiege.
