Vocabulary of the Greek NT

This Markan Latinism (Mark 15:39; Mark 15:44 f. : cf also Ev. Petr. 8ff.) for the familiar ἑκατόνταρχος may be illustrated from OGIS 196 (B.C. 32) where a Roman official records his visit to the temple of Isis at Phylae σὺν κεντορίωσι Ῥούφωι, Δημητρίωι κτλ. The soldier Apion writing to his father from Italy to announce his safe arrival signs himself as enrolled in the Κεντυρί (α) Ἀθηνονίκη (BGU II. 423.24 (ii/A.D.) = Selections, p. 92).
