Vocabulary of the Greek NT

An interesting ex. of this word, which in the plur. usually has reference to money, is afforded by P Giss I. 54.13 (iv/v A.D.) (= Chrest. I. p. 498) σπούδασον οὖν μετὰ τῶν ε ̣̈̀[τ ]έρων σου καταλαβεῖν, ἵνα μὴ οἱ ἀπὸ διαδοτῶν λάβοιντο <τὸ > κέρδος ̣ ὑμῶν, where the editor (p. 89) suggests that the meaning may be ";bakshish,"; ";a bribe.";
