Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The verb (MGr = ";buy";) is common in deeds of sale, e.g. P Lond 882.24 (B.C. 101) ( = III. p. 14) ἣν ἠγόρασεν παρὰ Θ., ib. 1208.10 (B.C. 97) ( = III. p. 19). It is used of the purchase of slaves in OGIS 338.23 (the will of Attalus III.—B.C. 133) : cf. 1 Corinthians 6:20; 1 Corinthians 7:23 τιμῆς ἠγοράσθητε (Deissmann LAE, p. 328). So P Oxy VIII. 1149.5 ff. (ii/A.D.) [γο ]ράσαι παρὰ Τασαρ [α ]πίωνος ὃν ἔχει δοῦλον Σαραπίωνα, ";to buy from Tasarapion her slave Sarapion,"; al. Both the verb and the corresponding substantive are found in P Oxy II. 298.11, .48, a long letter by a tax-collector of i/A.D., στατῆρας πορφύ [ρ ]ας ἀγόρασον. . . ἐὰν εὕρῃς ἀγ [ο ]ραστὴν τοῦ μέρ [ους ] τῆς οἰκίας. For ἀγοραστός, see also P Petr II. 20ii. 5, .8 (B.C. 252) τοῦ ἀγοραστοῦ = ";(wheat) for sale,"; and P Tebt I. 30.11 (A.D. 123) ( = Selections, p. 78) ἀγοραστὴν παρὰ Θενπετεσούχο ̣υ. . . οἰκίαν, ";the house as purchased from Thenpetesuchus,"; al. Ἀγοράζειν παρά is illustrated above (P Lond 1208.10, P Oxy 1149.5, etc.) : for . ἀπό cf. P Flor II. 175.11 (A.D. 255) δήλοι (for δήλου) ἀπὸ τίνος τέκτονος ἠγοράσθη. For the gen. of price cf. P Par 59.6 ( = Witkowski Epp.2, p. 75—B.C. 60) τούτων (sc. 1 talent 140 drachmae) ἠγώρακα σίτου ἀρ (τάβας) `b (δραχμῶν) `cl κτλ.
