Vocabulary of the Greek NT

P Petr III. 107(e).6, .9 (iii/B.C.) ἰχθύος, BGU IV. 1123.9 (time of Augustus) ἢ ἰχθύας ἢ ἀγρίας, P Fay 113.13 (A.D. 100) τῇ πόλι πέμσις εἰκθύας (l. ἰχθύας) (δραχμῶν) ιβ, P Hamb I. 6.11 (A.D. 128) μηδὲν ἀπὸ θή [ρ ]ας ἰχθύας π ̣εριγεγονέναι μέχρι ν ̣ῦν, OG1S 484.26 (ii/A.D.) δι᾽ ὧν ἐπηρέαζον μάλιστα τοὺς τὸν ἰχθὺν πιπράσκοντας. The noun is used collectively in P Flor II. 201.9 (A.D. 259) τοὺς παρά σοι ἁλιέας ἀποστεῖλαι ἔχοντας ἰχθὺν κάλλιστον, ";spedire i tuoi pescatori con assai quantità di pesce"; (Ed.). For the adj. ἰχθυϊκός (2 Chronicles 33:14 A) see Ostr 331.4 (Ptol.) ἰχθυϊκῶν ἁλιέων, and for ἰχθυηρός (2 Esdras 13:3) see P Par 63.98 (B.C. 165) τοὺς ὑποτελεῖς τῆ ̣ τε ἰχθυηρᾷ καὶ ζυτηρᾷ, ";those subject to the fish tax and the beer tax."; The Christian epigram Kaibel 725 (iii-v/A.D.) is partly acrostic, the initial letters of the first five lines making up the word ἰχθύς.
