For ζήτημα, which in the NT is confined to Ac, cf. P Oxy IX. 1188.5 (A.D. 13) ὡς πρὸς σὲ τοῦ περὶ τῶν ἀγνο ̣η (θέντων) ζ ̣η ̣(τήματος) ̣σ ̣ο ̣(μένου), ";knowing that you will be held accountable in any inquiry concerning facts that remain unknown"; (Ed.), ib. I. 97.14 (A.D. 115–6) περὶ ἧς τὸ ζήτημα ὑπερετέθη ἐπὶ τὸν κράτιστον ἡγεμόνα. The word = ";claim"; in P Ryl II. 117.14 (A.D. 269) τοὺς μηδὲν [τ ]ῶν κ ̣α ̣τοιχομένων κεκληρονομηκότας μὴ κατέχεσθαι τοῖς ἐκείνων ὀφε ̣[ιλήμασι ]ν ἢ καὶ ζητήμασιν, ";that those who have inherited nothing from deceased persons cannot be held responsible for their debts or the claims made against them"; (Edd.). In MGr ζήτημα = ";controversy.";
