Thayer's Greek Lexicon
STRONGS NT 2255: ἥμισυς

ἥμισυς, ἡμίσεια, ἥμισυ; genitive ἡμίσους (Mark 6:23 (the Sept. Exodus 25:9; etc.), for the uncontracted form ἡμισεος which is more common in the earlier and more elegant Greek writings (from Herodotus down)); neuter plural ἡμίση, Luke 19:8 R G, a form in use from Theophrastus down, for the earlier ἡμισεα adopted by Lachmann (cf. Passow (also Liddell and Scott), under the word; Winer's Grammar, § 9, 2 d.; ἡμίσεια in T Tr (ἡμίσιά WH) seems due to a corruption of the copyists, see Stephanus Thesaurus iv., p. 170; Alexander Buttmann (1873) Ausf. Spr. i., p. 248; Alex. Alexander Buttmann (1873) in Studien und Kritiken for 1862, p. 194f; (N. T. Gram. 14 (13); Tdf. Proleg., p. 118; but especially WHs Appendix, p. 158)); the Sept. for מַחֲצִית, much more often חֲצִי; half; it takes the gender and number of the annexed substantive (where τό ἥμισυ might have been expected): τά ἡμίση τῶν ὑπαρχόντων, Luke 19:8 (so Greek writings say ἥμισυς τοῦ βίου, οἱ ἡμίσεις τῶν ἱππέων, see Passow, under the word; (Liddell and Scott, under the word, L 2; Kühner, § 405, 5 c.); τάς ἡμίσεις τῶν δυνάμεων, 1 Macc. 3:34, 37); neuter τό ἥμισυ, substantively, the half; without the article a half: ἕως ἡμίσους τῆς βασιλείας μου (Esther 5:3; Esther 7:2), Mark 6:23; ἥμισυ καιροῦ, Revelation 12:14; as in classical Greek, καί ἥμισυ is added to cardinal numbers even where they are connected with masculine and feminine substantives, as τρεῖς ἡμέρας καί ἥμισυ, three days and a half, Revelation 11:9, 11 (ὀψώνειν δυοιν δραχμων καί ἡμίσους, Ath. 6, p. 274 c.; δύο or ἑνός πήχεων καί ἡμίσους, Exodus 25:16; Exodus 26:16; Exodus 38:1 (Alex.)); with καί omitted: Revelation 11:9 Tdf. edition 7 (μυριάδων ἑπτά ἡμίσους, Plutarch, Mar. 34).
