Vocabulary of the Greek NT

To the legal BGU I. 326, cited s.v. ἑρμηνεία, there is added the following official docket—ii. 22 Γάϊος Λούκκιος Γεμινι [ανὸ ]ς νομικὸς Ῥωμαϊκὸς ἡρμήνευσα τὸ προκείμενον ἀντίγραφον καί ἐστιν σύμφωνον τῇ αὐθεντικῇ διαθήκῃ. Cf. the fragment of an unknown Latin work, P Ryl II. 62 (iii/A.D.), which ends—Ὀλύμπ [ιος ] Ἰσ [ι ]δωριανὸς [. . . . . . .] ἑρμήνευσα ἀπὸ Ῥω [μα ]ϊκῶν. The verb is used in a wider sense in BGU I. 140.20 (A.D. 201–2) τὸ αὐστηρότερον ὑπὸ τῶν πρὸ ἐμοῦ αὐτοκρατόρων σταθὲν φιλανθρωπότερ [ο ]ν ἑρμηνεύω : cf. Luke 24:27 D. MGr = ";explain,"; ";comment upon.";
