Vocabulary of the Greek NT

In P Lond 24.4 (B.C. 163) (= I. p. 32) a recluse at the Serapeum describes himself as living—ἀφ᾽ ὧν ἐπαιτῶ ἐν τῶι ἱερῶι, ";from what I beg in the temple"; : cf. Luke 16:8 ἐπαιτεῖν αἰσχύνομαι. That temples generally were a promising haunt for the profession Luke reminds us elsewhere. Ἐπήτρια, the Greek for a ";beggaress";—to parallel it with an equal novelty—appears as a ἅπ. εἰρ. in P Par 59.10 (B.C. 160) (= Witkowski, 2 p. 76, where see note) : cf. ἀγύρτρια (Aesch. Ag. 1273), δέκτρια (Archil. 8). The pass. of the verb is found in P Tebt I. 26.18 (B.C. 114) πρὸς πῆι (l. τῆι) ἐπιδόσει τῶν ἐπαιτουμένων λόψων, ";for the delivery of the accounts which were required"; (Edd.).
