Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For this NT ἅπ. εἰρ. (Acts 17:26 it is sufficient to cite P Tor I. 1i. 23 (B.C. 116) οἱ ἐνκαλούμενοι τὴν κατοικίαν ἔχοντες ἐν τοῖς Μεμνονείοις, ";citati domicilium habentes in Memnoniis"; (Ed.), P Fay 12.27 (c. B.C. 103) δέομαι ἀποστεῖλαί μου τὴν ἔντευξιν ἐπὶ τοὺς α ̣̓ποτεταγμένους τῆι κατοικίᾳ χρηματιστάς, ";I entreat you to send my petition to the assize-judges appointed for the settlement"; (Edd.), P Ryl II. 165.17 (A.D. 266) the sale of four arourae of catoecic land (γῆς κατοικικῆς)—τῷ τῆς κατοικίας δικαίῳ σχοινίῳ, ";measured by the just measure of the settlement"; (Edd.), and from the inscrr. Cagnat IV. 834.4 (Hierapolis) εἰ δὲ ἔτι ἕτερος κηδεύσει, δώσει τῇ κατοικίᾳ τῶν ἐν Ἱεραπόλει κατοικούντων Ἰουδαίων προστείμου δηνάρια. . This last inscr. is discussed by Ramsay in Exp VI. v. p. 96 f., where it is shown that the technical term κατοικία points to a ";settlement"; of Jews in the city with definite rights and a legalized position, so that there was little distinction between them and the old population.
