ἐκτός is found in the substantival phrase τὸ ἐκτός, as in Matthew 23:26, in P Tebt II. 316.95 (A.D. 99) οἰκῶ δὲ ἐν τῷ ἐκτὸς τῆ (l. τῆς) ξυληρᾶ (? l.—ᾶς), ";on the outskirts of the wood-market (?)."; Cf. P Oxy X.1258.8 (A.D. 45) where the writer declares that he will appear before the strategus—ὄντα ἐκτ [ὸ ]ς ἱεροῦ βω [μοῦ κτλ., ";unprotected by any temple, altar,"; etc., ib. 1295.11 (ii/iii A.D.) δε ̣ο οὖν, μὴ ̣ ἀνα ̣π ̣ε ̣ι ̣θ ̣ε ̣ αὐτο ̣, ν ̣ τ ̣οῦ ἐκτός μου ε ̣[ἶ ]ναι, ";I therefore beg that you will not persuade him to desert me"; (Edd.), and P Amh II. 143.16 (iv/A.D.) μὴ θελήσῃς οὖν, κύριε, μῖνε (l. μεῖναι) ἐκτὸς ἡμῶν αὔριον, ";so please, sir, do not stay away from us to-morrow"; (Edd.). In the long astronomical papyrus P Par 1.398 (ii/B.C.) we have ἐκτὸς ἡμέραν μίαν καὶ νύκτα, ";except for a single day and night."; Ἐκτός is used absolutely in P Tebt II. 380.9 (A.D. 67) οὐλὴ χιρεὶ δεξίᾳ ἐκτο ̣(ς) : cf. OGIS 762.12 (ii/B.C.) ἃ δ [ὲ ] ἂν προστιθῶσιν ἐν ταῖς συνθήκαις, ἐνέστ [ω ] ἐν ταῖς συνθήκαις, ἃ δὲ ἂν ἀφέλ [ω ]σιν τῶν συνθ [η ]κῶν, ἐκτὸς ἔστω, and Syll 567 (ii/A.D.) where the external purifications required in drawing near to a temple are headed—καὶ τὰ ἐκτός. See also Kuhring, p. 50 f. For the pleonastic negation ἐκτὸς εἰ μή (as in 1 Corinthians 14:5; 1 Corinthians 15:2, 1 Timothy 5:19) Deissmann (BS p. 118) cites an inscription of Mopsuestia in Cilicia, belonging to the Imperial period—ἐκτὸς εἰ μὴ [ἐ ]ὰν Μάγνα μόνη θε [λή ]σῃ (Waddington Inscriptions, iii. 2, No. 1499). See also the Lycian inscr. in JHS xxxiv. (1914), p. 31, No. 44.6 ὧν ὁ ἐλέν [ξ ]ας λήνψετε τὸ τρίτον, ἐκτὸς εἰ μή τινι ἐγὼ ἐν [γραφ ]ῶς ἐπιτρέ [ψω. On the form of the word as a derivative of ἐξ, see Moulton Gr. ii. § 130.
