Thayer's Greek Lexicon
STRONGS NT 4560: σάρκινος

σάρκινος, σαρκίνη, σάρκινον (σάρξ) (Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle, others), fleshy, Latincarneus, i. e.

1. consisting of flesh, composed of flesh (for proparoxytones ending in (ινος generally denote the material of which a thing is made, cf. Fritzsche, Ep. ad Romans, ii., p. 46f; (Donaldson, New Crat. § 258)); Vulg.carnalis: opposed to λίθινος, 2 Corinthians 3:3 (σάρκινος ἰχθύς, opposed to a fish of gold which has been dreamed of, Theocritus, id. 21, 66; the word is also found in Plato, Aristotle, Theophrastus, Plutarch; the Sept., others).

2. pertaining to the body (as earthly and perishable material, opposed to ζωή ἀκατάλυτος): Hebrews 7:16 G L T Tr WH (see σαρκικός, 2).

3. it is used where σαρκικός might have been expected: viz. by G L T Tr WH in Romans 7:14 and 1 Corinthians 3:1; in these passages, unless we decide that Paul used σαρκικός and σάρκινος indiscriminately, we must suppose that σάρκινος expresses the idea of σαρκικός with an emphasis: wholly given up to the flesh, rooted in the flesh as it were. Cf. Winer's Grammar, § 16, 3 γ.; Fritzsche as above; Reiche, Critical Commentary on the N. T., i., p. 138ff; Holsten, Zum Evang. des Paulus u. Petrus, p. 397ff. (Rostock, 1887); (Trench, Synonyms, § lxxii.).
