Vocabulary of the Greek NT

A hitherto unknown derivative of this word is found in P Petr II. 10(2).13 (iii/B.C.) ἐν τῶι ἐφημερευτηριῶι, with reference apparently to the ";guardroom, where soldiers remain all day on duty"; (Ed.). For the verb ἐφημερέω see OGIS 595.20 (ii/A.D.) ἐφημερ (οῦ)ντος Γ (αΐου) Οὐαλερίου Καλλικράτους. The subst. ἐφημερίς = ";daybook"; occurs in official documents e.g. P Oxy II. 268.10 (A.D. 58), 271.8 (A.D. 56), ib. XII. 1497.6 (c. A.D. 279). In MGr ἐφημερία is an eccles. term = ";parish,"; ";cure,"; and ἐφημερίδα = ";newspaper.";
