Vocabulary of the Greek NT

A new reference for this verb occurs in the much mutilated classical fragment, P Peti I. 9.6 : cf. Arehiv iii. p. 165. For the subst. θρηνητής see BGU I. 34 recto iv. 4 εἰς πεῖν τοῖς παιδίοις α ̄, θρηνητῇ α ̄, where the numerals probably refer to jars of wine : and cf. the use of θρήνωμα (= θρήνημα) in P Tebt I. 140 (B.C. 72) θρηνώματα εἰς τὸν Ὀσῖριν β ̄. MGr θρῆνος, ";a dirge.";
