Vocabulary of the Greek NT

In a lengthy account or private expenses, P Oxy IV. 736.36 (c. A.D. 1), we find the entry ἀσπαράγω ̣(ν ) [δί ]πνῳ Ἀντ (ᾶτος ) ὅτ᾽ εἰς τὸ περι ̣δ [ι ]πνο (ν ) Ἀθη ( ) γναφέω (ς ) (ἡμιωβέλιον ), ";asparagus for the dinner of Antas when (he went) to the funeral feast of Athe . . . the fuller ½ ob."; (Edd.) : cf. ib. 738.1 (c. A.D. 1) δίπνωι ε ̄ Κανωπικὸν ἧπαρ , ";for dinner on the 5th a Canopic liver. For δειπνητήριον = ";a civic banqueting-hall"; see the inscription of the time of Vespasian (A.D. 69–79) in P Fay p. 33. Another compound, δειπνοκλήτωρ , occurs in the remarkable alternative version of the parable of Luke 14:7 ff., found in D Φ al after Matthew 20:28. Nestle, Text. Criticism, p. 257, remarks that Artemidorus (ap. Athenaeus) called the ἐλέατρος by this name—";a manager of the table, taster"; (LS). He equates it to a Syriac phrase = ";master of the feast,"; and claims it as belonging to the later popular language. It may accordingly represent not the entertainer but the nomenclator—the slave who acted as marshal at a dinner-party. Δεῖπνον is not frequent in our documents, but it survives in MGr. We might add P Lond 219(a) recto.1, .2 (ii/B.C.) (= II. p. 2), where in accounts concerning a dinner (περὶ δεῖπνον ) the beer (ζύτον ) costs 40 dr. a chous (nearly 6 pints), which the editor observes was a high price.
