Vocabulary of the Greek NT

To the exx. of this dialectic form, which in the NT is found only in Mark 4:28 אB*L, add a Messenian inscr. of B.C. 91, dealing with the Mysteries, Michel 694.30 ff. μετὰ δὲ ταῦτα αἱ παρθένοι αἱ ἱεραὶ. . . εἶτεν ἁ θοιναρμόστρια (";the lady president of the feast";) ἁ εἰς Δάματρος. . . εἶτεν ἁ ἱέρεα τᾶς Δάματρος κτλ., and from the papyri P Leid Wx. 9 (ii/iii A.D.) εἶτεν κατὰ πρόσθεσιν τῶν φωτῶν ὑψωθέντων κτλ. Dittenberger supplies the word in OGIS 237.13 (end of iii/B.C.) corresponding to a preceding.12 πρῶτομ μέν, and cites Syll 540.150 (B.C. 175–1), 653.31 (B.C. 91). The word therefore can hardly now be described as ";very rare"; (Grimm-Thayer).
