Vocabulary of the Greek NT

In P Lond 131*.7 (A.D. 78) (= I. p. 189) κεράτ (ια) is used of the fruit of the carob, as in Luke 15:16 : cf. P Leid Xxii. 35 (medical prescription—iii/iv AD.) (= p. 237) ἀκάνθης κεράτια. From v/A.D. onwards the word is used in Egypt, like the Latin siliqua, of a money measure, the ";carat"; : see e.g. P Oxy I. 154 verso (vii/A.D.) with the editor’s notes, and Chrest. I. i. p. lxvii.
