P Fay 121.15 (c. A.D. 100) τοῦ ] κυρτοῦ βυρσέως , ";the hunch-backed tanner."; From βύρσα , ";hide,"; on the analogy of the gen. βύρσης , we find an acc. βύρσην , as P Petr II. introd. p. 37 (d).7 : see Mayser Gr. p. 12, and cf. Proleg. p. 48. P Oxy VII. 1057.3 (A.D. 362) has ἀπὸ τιμῆς βύρσας , where analogy has worked the other way. In P Petr II. 32 (1) a βυρσοδέψης , ";tanner,"; is also described as a σκυτεύς , ";cobbler"; : cf. the editor’s note and Wilcken Ostr. i. p. 294.
