This NT ἅπ. εἰρ. (1 Corinthians 15:8, cf. Numbers 12:12) may be illustrated from the verb in P Goodsp Cairo 15.15 (A.D. 362) where a complaint is made with reference to certain persons—τὴν μὲν Τάησιν βαρέαν οὖσαν ἐκ τῶν πληγῶν αὐτῶν ἐξέτρωσεν (l. —αν) τὸ βρέφος, ";to Taesis who was pregnant they occasioned by their violence the miscarriage of her child"; (Ed.). Cf. also Apoc. Petr. II αὗται δὲ ἦσαν α [ἱ τὰ βρέφη φθείρο ]υσαι καὶ ἐκτρώσασαι. Ἐκτρωσμός is found Preisigke 3451.5, .10. Hesych. : ἔκτρωμα · παιδίον νεκρὸν ἄωρον. ἐκ ̣βολὴ γυναικός. For the form see Moulton Gr. ii. § 119 (b).
