P Ryl II. 153.32 ἕξι ] . . ἐφ᾽ ὃν αὐτὴ περίεστιν χρόνον τὴν τῶν αὐτῶν δούλων δουλί [αν, ";shall retain for so long as she survives the services of the said slaves"; (Edd.). P Grenf II. 75.4 (A.D. 305) ὁμολογῶ τετροφευκέν [αι ] σοι τὸ τέταρτον μέρος τῆς δουλίας, where, according to the editors, ";the sense seems to require that δουλεία should be taken in its abstract meaning, and τὸ τέταρτον μέρος as an indirect accusative."; The document is an acknowledgement by Tapaous, a νεκροτάφη of the city of Month, that she had received payment for food and clothing as one of four nurses in a certain household. In MGr δουλειά is used generally of any work or task, especially of a menial character.
