 1) to roll off or away

 ++++
 This word is used in the Gospels to refer to the stone that was in
 front of the tomb of Jesus. In Palestine, graves were usually in a
 depression and the stone was rolled down an incline to cover the
 mouth of the tomb. For a small grave, about twenty men were required
 to roll a stone down hill to cover the door of the tomb. The Bible
 tells us that the stone covering the door of the tomb was a large
 stone. The women would have needed more men than even a full Roman
 guard of sixteen men to roll away the stone. This was a major task.
