This very rare verb may now be illustrated from P Tebt II. 576 (B.C. 14–3), where a list of lands cultivated by δημόσιοι γεωργοί begins ιζ ̄ (ἔτους ) σπόρος διγματισ (θεὶς ?) δημ (οσίων ) γεωργ (ῶν ). It is also found along with the subst. in the Greek fragment of the Ascension of Isaiah P Amh I. 1viii. 21 ἀπὸ το [ῦ δει ]γματισμοῦ ὅτι [ἐ ]δειγμάτισεν τὸν [Σ ]αμαήλ . The subst. occurs in BGU I. 246.6 (ii/iii A.D.) κινδυνεύω κα [ὶ ταῦ ]τα (?) ἀπολέσαι μετὰ καὶ διγματισμοῦ καλῶς ἐτρήκατε (? l. εὑρήκατε ) καὶ μονείμως (l. μονίμως ), and in P Gizeh 10271.12 (in Archiv ii. p. 81) ἕως τοῦ δειγμα [τισμοῦ , and on the Rosetta Stone, OGIS 90.30 (B.C. 196) τὰ πρὸς τὸν δειγματισμὸν διάφορα , ";the cost of having them verified."; The verb takes an infin. in P Ryl I. 28.32 (iv/A.D.), where if the ὑπόταυρος ";quivers,"; δειγματισθήσεται ὁ τοιοῦτ [ο ]ς ἀπολέσθαι τι κρυφιμαῖον : in.70 διγματ [ι ]σμοὺς καὶ λοιδορίας καὶ κρυφιμαίων πραγμάτων ἐπιφάνιαν seems to mean ";exposures.";
Since δειγματίζω does not begin to appear till long after παραδειγματίζω , it is quite conceivable that παράδειγμα produced the latter verb, and δειγματίζω was shortened from it by the help of the noun δεῖγμα . The early appearance of δειγματισμός (B.C. 196) is the main difficulty, since that is coeval with παραδειγματίζω .
