Vocabulary of the Greek NT

Amongst the bequests in the will of Demetrius (P Petr III. 6 (a).26 (B.C. 237), we find τὸν [θ ]ω ̣ρακα and [τὴ ]ν ζώνην θωράκιτ [ιν. The word is similarly used = ";breast-plate"; in P Giss I. 47.6 (time of Hadrian) ] μὲν γὰρ θώραξ ἐκ καλοῦ ὠροχάλκου ὢν καὶ [τ ]ὴν πλοκὴν λεπτότατος καὶ τὸ μεῖζον ἐλα [φ ]ρότατος ̣ ὡς μὴ κάμνειν τὸν φοροῦντα αὐτὸν [ ]γοράσθη κτλ. For the verb, as in 1 Maccabees 4:7, cf. OGIS 332.7 (B.C. 138–133) ἄγαλμα πεντάπηχυ τεθωρακισμένον, while in the list of traders, which makes up the alphabetical acrostic P Tebt II. 278i. 8 (early i/A.D.), we find a θωρωκοποίς (l. θωρακοποι ()ς), ";a breast-plate-maker,"; between an ἠπητής, ";a cobbler,"; and an ἰατρός, ";a physician.";
