Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The word is common (MGr = ";seashore";); but it may be noted that in P Tebt I. 79 (c. B.C. 148) it refers to the shore of Lake Moeris; in ib. 82 (B.C. 115) and 83 (late ii/B.C.) to the shore of a marshy lake then covering the neighbourhood of Medinet Nehâs (see the editors’ note on p. 346). So P Fay 82.3 (A.D. 145), P Tebt II. 308.5 (A.D. 174). On the use of the term in Acts 27:39, see W. M. Ramsay St Paul, p. 341, and Expositor V. vi. p. 154 ff. P Fay 222 (iii/A.D.) is the beginning of a document addressed Φιλίππῳ αἰγιαλοφύλακι Ἀρσινοί [του ]. We find γῆ αἰγιαλῖτις mentioned in P Oxy VI. 918xiii. 10 (ii/A.D.), P Lond 924.7 (A.D. 187–8) ( = III. p. 134) : Sir F. G. Kenyon renders ";land on the border of the lake.";
