—Greek Word Study (Transliteration-Pronunciation Etymology & Grammar)

 1) to dip, dip in, immerse
 2) to dip into dye, to dye, colour

 Not to be confused with G0907, baptizo. The clearest example that shows
 the meaning of baptizo is a text from the Greek poet and physician
 Nicander, who lived about 200 B.C. It is a recipe for making pickles
 and is helpful because it uses both words. Nicander says that in
 order to make a pickle, the vegetable should first be 'dipped'
 (bapto) into boiling water and then 'baptised' (baptizo) in the
 vinegar solution. Both verbs concern the immersing of vegetables in a
 solution. But the first is temporary. The second, the act of
 baptising the vegetable, produces a permanent change.

—Thayer's (New Testament Greek-English Lexicon)

A primary verb; to whelm, that is, cover wholly with a fluid; in the New Testament only in a qualified or specific sense, that is, (literally) to moisten (a part of one's person), or (by implication) to stain (as with dye):—dip.
