For this form in –ττ –, which is read in the NT in 2 Peter 2:19 f. (for the LXX see Thackeray Gr. i. p. 121 f.), cf. PSI IV. 340.21 (B.C. 257–6) οὐκ ἑττηθήσεσθε (l. ἡττ –) ὑπὸ ἀνθρώπου ἀνελευθέρου, and the interesting report of a Jewish uprising in an Egyptian village during the reign of Hadrian, Chrest. I. 16.7, when the writer admits—οἱ ἡμέ [τ ]ερο [ι ] ἡττ [ή ]θησαν καὶ πολλοὶ [α ]ὐτῶν συνεκόπ [ησαν. In P Hal I. 1.54, .115 (mid. iii/B.C.) we have ἡσσηθῆι twice : cf. 2 Corinthians 12:18 where ἡσσώθητε (from Ionic ἑσσοῦσθαι) is read in א* BD*. See further Wackernagel Hellenistica, p. 12 ff., where it is shown that Hellenistic writers have retained –ττ – in certain words which were taken over directly from Attic and were not current in another form in the Κοινή.
