Vocabulary of the Greek NT

With the substantive ἀλοητός which is found as a variant in LXX Leviticus 26:5, Amos 9:13, may be compared P Tebt I. 4816 f. (c. B.C. 113) ὄντων πρὸς τῆι παραδόσει τῶν ἐκφορίων καὶ τοῦ ἀλοητοῦ , where however from its dependence on παραδόσει , the editors understand . to refer to a payment of some kind, probably to various minor taxes at the ἅλως . See also BGU IV. 1031.11 (ii/A.D.) ὅρα μὴ ἀμελήσῃς τὸν ἀλοητὸν τῆς νησοῦ . (It is better with Crönert s.v. to write the word with smooth breathing, instead of following the abnormal . of the Attic cognate ἅλως .)
