Vocabulary of the Greek NT

γόμος is common of the cargo or freight of a ship as in Acts 21:3, e.g. P Oxy I. 63.6 (ii/iii A.D.) προνόησον σὺν πάσῃ σπουδῇ ἐνβαλέσθαι αὐτοῦ τὸν γόμον , ";please to see that his freight is embarked with all despatch"; (Edd), ib. IV. 708.3, .16 (A.D. 188) τοῦ ] καταχθέντος γόμου , ";the cargo despatched."; It may also be a term of quantity, a ";load,"; as in Ostr 1258 (A.D. 88) ἀπέχω παρὰ σοῦ γόμος (sc. -ον ) ἀχύρου α ̄, ib. 1010.5 (Roman) τήν αὐθεντικὴν ἀποχὴν ἀχύρ [ου ] γόμου ἑνός . Ib. 1015.4 (ii/iii A.D.) shows the plural : cf. P Fay 102 (c. A.D. 105), a series of farm accounts, in which we read of γόμοι and δράγμ (ατα ) of wheat and barley. Another kind of merchandise figures in P Flor III. 369.18 (A.D. 139 or 149) κ (αὶ ) δώσο κατ᾽ ἔτος ξύλων καθάρσεων γόμον ἕνα . An inscr. from Lower Egypt, beyond Philae, dated A.D. 214–5, OGIS 209.3, gives the title ἱερεὺς γόμου to a certain Apollonius Soter. Dittenberger’s note cites about forty inscrr. for this title, and others where a προστάτης τοῦ γόμου accompanies this priest. He observes that, since γόμος always means a ship’s load, these inscriptions must refer to the naves onerariae : οἱ ἀπὸ τοῦ γόμου is in several inscrr. a term for the whole of this service. In these the special ref. is to the boats carrying stone from the quarries.

The verb γομόω is mentioned above under γεμίζω : for some instances see P Flor II. 129.5 (A.D. 256) ὅπως γομώσῃ τὰ ξύλα , P Oxy VI. 938.6 (iii/iv A.D.), and P. Giss I. 54.11 (iv/v A.D.) πλοῖα παρῆλθαν (l.εν ) γομώμενα .
