Vocabulary of the Greek NT

In BGU IV. 1024, a curious papyrus codex of the end of iv/A.D. made up of various widely differing documents, we find in the account of a legal process iii. 8 κ ̣α ̣ι ̣ρύτδετ ̣ε δὲ η γυναικ ̣ι ̣, which apparently stands for κηρύττετε or κήρυττε δὲ τῇ γυναικί. On the form κηρύττω see Thumb Hellen. p. 79, and on the use of the verb in 1 Corinthians 9:27 see Field Notes, p. 174, where any allusion to the office of the κῆρυξ in the public games is set aside in favour of a direct reference to the preaching of the Gospel. A new compound ἐνεκηρύξαμεν in the sense of ";we applied for tenders"; is found in P Petr III. 41 verso.2 (Ptol.).
