VI. 910.51 (A.D. 197) τῆς μὲν ἐν π [υ ]ρῷ διετίας, BGU I. 180.7 (ii/iii AD.) μ [ε ]τὰ διετίαν τῆς [ἀπο ]λύσεως, P Strass I. 2.10 (A.D. 217) τὴ ]ν λοιπὴ [ν δι ]ετίαν, and from the inscrr. Syll 805.4 (? i/A.D.) ἐκ διετίας βήσσοντά με ἀδ [ιαλεί ]πτως, OGIS 485.12 (Roman) γενόμενον δὲ καὶ ἐπὶ τῶν ἐπιπηγῶν διετίαν. The word δεκαετία is found P Strass I. 22.23 (iii/A.D.).
