Thayer's Greek Lexicon
STRONGS NT 4669: σμυρνίζω

σμυρνίζω: (σμύρνα, which see);

1. intransitive, to be like myrrh (Dioscorides (?) 1, 79).

2. to mix and so flavor with myrrh: οἶνος ἐσμυρνισμενος (perfect passive participle) wine (A. V. mingled) with myrrh (Vulg.murratum vinum), i. e. flavored or (Pliny, h. n. 14, 15) made fragrant with myrrh: Mark 15:23. But since the ancients used to infuse myrrh into wine in order to give it a more agreeable fragrance and flavor, we must in this matter accept Matthew's account (Matthew 27:34, viz. 'mingled with gall') as by far the more probable; (but see χολή, 2).

Strong's Exhaustive Concordance
mingle with myrrh.

From Smurna; to tincture with myrrh, i.e. Embitter (as a narcotic) -- mingle with myrrh.
