Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The word is too common in itself to need illustrating, unless we recorded the appearance of the epithet ποτάμιος to indicate a fisherman who exercised his calling on the Nile. It is, however, a good example of the rule by which in Hellenistic of the second period (i.e. A.D.) two i-sounds are not allowed to come together : see Proleg.3 p. 44 f. In this one case, in the nom. and accus. pl. of ἁλιεύς , dissimilation instead of contraction has taken place : ἁλεεῖς occurs in NT and in P Flor I. 12715 (A.D. 256), but note 1192 ἁλι [εῖς and 2758, from the same correspondence, and BGU IV. 10356 (v/A.D.). Of course P Petr III. 59 ii. 8 belongs to a period when the phonetic difficulty was not felt. Another expedient was ἁλιέας , P Flor II. 2018 (iii/A.D.). Hellenistic does not follow the Attic contractions (Δωριῶς , -ῶν ) : cf. ἁλιέων BGU III. 7566 (A.D. 199), Ἐριέως P Petr III. 59 (d)14. We find ἁλιείων in P Amh II. 3029 (ii/B.C.).
