The spelling Δελματία (2 Timothy 4:10 C 424** and other cursives—cf. Δερματίαν Α ) appears in Preisigke 173 (c. A.D. 200), the tombstone of T. Aurelius Calpurnianus Apollonides, who among other distinctions had been ἐπί (τροπος ) Δελματίας . It is supported by the derivative δελματική , the name of a kind of robe, spelt this way in BGU I. 93.7 (ii/iii A.D.) καλῶς ποιήσεις διαπέμψας αὐτῇ τὴ [ν ] δελματικήν , P Oxy VII. 1051.16 (iii/A.D.) δελματικῂ λινᾶ α ̣̄, and the diminutive δελματίκιον which occurs twice in the last papyrus, and in ib. 1026.10 (v/A.D.) δελματίκιον ὀνύχινον , ";an onyx-coloured Dalmatian vest"; (Edd.). See Deissmann BS, p. 182, where against the supposition of Alexandrian spelling (so Hort) is quoted CPR 21.16 (A.D. 230) δαλματική . Dalmatica is the Latin spelling (Souter).
