Strong's #1403 - δοχή
= cross δοχεῖον,
I receptacle, E. El. 828, Pl. Ti. 71c.

III σημεῖον ἐν θυτικῇ, Id.
This word in its NT sense of ";entertainment"; is read by Schubart (see Berichtigungen, p. 5) in BGU III. 815.7 ὁ Σωκρ [ά ]της ὁ προ [κου ]ράτορ μου κόπους [τινὰ ]ς πα [ρ ]έχῃ περὶ τῆς [δο ]χῆς (pap. [ . . ] λ ̣ης). The derivative δοχικός may be quoted as adj. from P Ryl II. 85.14 (A.D. 185) [μέτρῳ δημο ]σίῳ δοχικῷ, ";measured by the official standard,"; and as a neuter noun ib. 200.5 ff. (A.D. 111–2) (πυροῦ) δοχ (ικῷ) ";by receiving measure"; (Edd.). See the long note, P Hib I. p. 228 f., on the ratio of an artaba ἀνηλωτικῷ, ";by spending measure,"; to one δοχικῷ, the former being .1/20 larger. In ib. 87.18 (B.C. 256–5) the same is called μέτροις παραδ [ο ]χικοῖς. Δοχή itself is common, in accounts : see e.g. index to P Tebt I.
