In P Fay 12.20 (c. B.C. 103) a man who is stripped of his ἱμάτιον and sent forth γυμνός, is supplied by his friends με ̣τ ̣̕ ἐνδύματος, evidently an outer cloak. Cf. Syll 813.7 τὰ ὑπ᾽ ἐμοῦ καταλιφθέντα ἱμάτια καὶ ἔνδυμα, and ib. 877.3 (v/B.C.), where it is laid down that the dead are to be buried ἐν ἑμ [ατ ]ίο [ις τρι ]σὶ λευκοῖς, στρώματι καὶ ἐνδύματι [καὶ ἐ ]πιβλέματι. In the new fragment of a lost Gospel, P Oxy IV. 655.11 ff-, to the question ";Having one garment (ἓν ἔχοντ [ες ἔ ]νδυμα) what do ye (lack?)?"; the answer is given, αὐτὸ [ς δ ]ώσει ὑμῖν τὸ ἔνδυμα ὑμῶν. With Menandrea p. 80.269 ἐνδύμαθ᾽ οἷα —, ";what dresses!"; of a woman’s finery, cf. the ";wedding garment"; of Matthew 22:11 f. The word survives in literary MGr. The simple δῦμα, which was hitherto unknown, is found in P Oxy VI. 929.8, .15 (ii/iii A.D.).
