Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For this noun (the Hellenistic equivalent of καταγωγεῖον), as in Luke 2:7 (cf. Exodus 4:24), see P Par 34.5 (ii/B.C.) εἰς τὸ κατάλυμα τῶν Ἀρσινοϊτῶν, where the reference is to the ";lodging-place"; provided for the inhabitants of Arsinoë in the Serapeum. Elsewhere in Biblical Greek, e.g. 1 Kings 1:13, Mark 14:14, it has rather the sense of ";guest-room."; Κατάλυσις is similarly used in P Petr II. 14(1b).2 τὴν βασιλεικὴν κατάλυσιν, where Mahaffy notes that the Royal quarters served PS an ";inn"; for ihe convenience of officials who visited the place. In P Magd 8.10 (B.C. 218) we have κατ ]άλυσιν τοῦ βίου, ";the dissolution of life."; MGr κατάλυμα, ";lodging.";
