For δ. used in a moral sense, as in 1 Corinthians 9:27, we may cite Epict. iii. 24. 76 τί λέγεις πρὸς τοῦτον τὸν δουλαγωγοῦντά σε; ";what sayest thou to this man who is treating thee as a slave?"; Cf. ib. iv. 7. 17 (Sharp Epictetus and the NT, p. 71). For the subst. used literally cf. P Oxy I. 38.10 (A.D. 49–50) (= Selections, p. 53) τοῦ Σύρ [ου ] ἐπικεχειρηκότος ἀποσπάσαι εἰς δουλαγωγία [ν ] τὸν ἀφήλικά μου υἱὸν Ἀπίωνα, ";Syrus having endeavoured to carry off into slavery my young son Apion,"; ib. IX. 1206.11 (A.D. 335) εἰς δουλαγωγείαν ἄγειν, and the dialect inscription, apparently of Roman times, Syll 841.14 εἰ δέ τις ἐπιλανβάνοιτο αὐτῶν ἢ καταδουλίζοιτο, ἅ τε γενηθῖσα δουλαγωγία αὐτῶν ἄκυρος καὶ ἀρεμένα (l. ἀρμένα = ἠρμένη) ἔστω.
