Vocabulary of the Greek NT

OGIS 677.3 (early ii/A.D.) οἱ ἐγείραντες τὴν οἰκοδομὴν τοῦ πυλῶνος. With the use of the verb in Mark 13:8 and parallels, Boll (Offenbarung, p. 131) compares Catal. VII. p. 51 f. 72 ἐγερθήσονται κατὰ τῆς βασιλείας, but notes that it is ";von zweiter Hand."; An interesting example of the word is found in the much-discussed Logion of Jesus No. 5 (P Oxy I. 1) ἔγει [ρ ]ον τὸν λίθο (ν) κἀκεῖ εὑρήσεις με. For possible references to this saying in the Glossaries, see a note by Reitzenstein in ZNTW vi. p. 203.
