ἐπιτιμάω = ";censure,"; ";lay under a penalty,"; as notably in Mk (see Allen ad Mark 8:30), may be illustrated from P Magd 24.5 B.C. 218) ἀγανακτήσαντος δέ μου καὶ ἐπιτιμῶντος αὐτ [ῆι, P Par 42.7 (B.C. 156) μεταπεμψάμενος οὖν αὐτὸν καὶ τὸν φυλακίτην ἐπετίμων αὐτῷ, P Oxy X. 1295.5 (ii/iii A.D.) ἐὰν δὲ μέλλῃς οὕτ ̣ω α ̣ὐ ̣τῷ ἐπιτιμᾶν, and Syll 177.55 (B.C. 303) ὅπω ]ς, ἐάν τινες φαίνωνται μὴ τὰ βέλτιστα νομογραφοῦντες, ἀλλ᾽ [ἀνεπιτήδεια, αὐτοῖς ] ἐπιτιμῶμεν καὶ ζημιῶμεν. In PSI IV. 356.7 (B.C. 253–2) ἐπιτετίμηται is used of χόρτος that has been ";augmented"; in price. For ἐπιτιμή = ";penalty,"; ";fine,"; see P Petr III. 20 versoii. 5 (B.C. 246) τὰς ἐπιτιμὰς εἰς τὸ βασιλικ [ό ]ν, and for the corresponding use of τὸ ἐπίτιμον, see P Gen I. 20.15 (ii/B.C.) προσαποτισάτω ἐπίτιμον παραχρῆμα, P Oxy II. 275.29 (A.D. 66) (= Selections, p. 57) ἐπίτειμον δραχμὰς ἑκατόν, ib. X. 1282.40 (A.D. 83) τό τε βλάβος καὶ ἐπίτειμον, ";the damages and a fine,"; and the large number of exx. from iii/B.C. to iv/A.D. in Berger Strafklauseln, p. 5. Berger (p. 14) also recalls the rare use of ἐπίτιμον = contraband goods,"; as P Tebt I. 39.10 (B.C. 114) ἐλαϊκὸν ἐπίτιμον, ";contraband oil"; (Edd.) : cf. P Petr II. 30 (f).2 ἀπέφαινεν παῖς ὑπάρχειν ἐπίτιμον ἐν τῶι Μητροδώρου ἐποικίωι (δραχμὰ ̣ς ̣) ρ ̄ν ̄, where Mahaffy translates ";the slave showed that there was an assessable value (?) in the dwelling of Metrodorus worth 150 drachmae.";
