For this word, which in the NT is confined to Matthew 23:10, cf. P Giss I. 80.11 (ii/A.D.) πέμψον τῷ καθηγητῇ τῆς θυ ̣γ ̣[ατρό ]ς μου, ἵνα φιλοπονήσῃ εἰς αὐτήν, ";send to my daughter’s teacher that he may bestir himself about her,"; P Oxy VI. 930.6 (ii/iii A.D.) ἐλοιπήθην ἐπιγνοῦσα παρὰ τῆς θυγατρὸς τοῦ καθηγητοῦ ἡμῶν, ";I was grieved to learn from our teacher’s daughter."; In the fragmentary P Tebt II. 591 (ii/iii A.D.) the editors suggest that καθηγητής may denote a priestly office. MGr καθηγητής = ";professor.";
