Vocabulary of the Greek NT

Like its verb (see s.v. καταβάλλω) this noun is frequently found in the sense of ";payment,"; e.g. P Par 62v. 12 (c. B.C. 170) τῶν δὲ καταβολῶν σύμβολα λαμβανέτωσαν παρὰ τοῦ τραπεζίτου, BGU IV. 1135.8 (prob. B.C. 10) τῇ μην [ιαίᾳ κ ]αταβολῇ, P Lond 1171 verso i. 7 (A.D. 42) (= III. p. 106) ἰς καταβολὴν τῷ ἐγλήμπτορι τοῦ μέλιτος καὶ κηροῦ, P Strass I. 26.11 (iv/A.D.) ἡ γὰρ προθεσμία τῆς καταβολῆς συνέστηκεν. See also P Eleph 23.18 (B.C. 223–2) with reference to land ]χ ̣ε ̣ι ̣ν ̣ με ταύτης προσβολὴν καὶ κατ [α ]βολήν, ἃ καὶ ἐπιδέδειχά σοι. With the noun in Hebrews 11:11 cf. καταβολαῖος used of a ";store-place,"; P Fay 110.6. .30 (A.D. 94).
