P Hib I. 54.15 (c. B.C. 245) χρεία γάρ ἐστι ταῖς γυναιξὶν πρὸς τὴν θυσίαν, P Tebt I. 33.16 (B.C.112) (= Selections, P. 31) τ ̣. [. .] . [. . σ ]ταθησόμενα θύματα καὶ τῆς θ ̣υ ̣σ ̣ι ̣[α ]̓, BGU IV. 1198.12 (beginning of i/B.C.) ποιούμενοι ἁγνήας καὶ θυσίας, ib. 1201.8 (A.D. 2) πρὸς τὰς λιτουργείας καὶ θυσείας τῶν θεῶν, P Oxy IX, 1211.1 (ii/A.D.) τὰ πρὸς τὴν θυσίαν τοῦ ἱεοωτάτου Νείλου, P Giss I. 40ii. 21 (A.D. 212) κατάγειν θυσίας εἵνεκεν ταύρους. The libelli of the Decian persecution are regularly addressed—τοῖς ἐπὶ τῶν θυσιῶν ᾑρημένοις, ";to those chosen to superintend the sacrifices,"; or some similar phrase : see e.g. BGU I. 287.1 (A.D. 250) (= Selections, p. 115), and cf. the similar use of θυσιάζω in P Ryl II. 112 (a).10, (b).15, (c).14 (A.D. 250). From the inscrr. we may cite OG1S 59.15 (c. B.C. 188) ὅπως ἔχωσιν εἴς τε τὰς θυσίας καὶ τὸ ἄλειμμα δαπανᾶν, Syll 633.9 (ii/A.D.) ἐὰν δέ τις βιάσηται, ἀπρόσδεκτος ἡ θυσία παρὰ τοῦ θεοῦ (cf. Philippians 4:18, Sirach 32:9).
