Vocabulary of the Greek NT

In P Tebt II. 279.1 (B.C. 231) we find the phrase πέπτωκεν εἰς κιβωτόν, which is confined to iii/B.C. papyri, with reference to the depositing of documents, here a nursing con–tract, in the ";official"; chest : see the editors’ introd. and cf. Archiv v. p. 230 f. Other instances of the word are P Fay 121.8 (c. A.D. 100) ἐν τῆι (for gender, Mayser Gr. p. 261) κειβωτῶι τῶν ἀσκῶν ἧι ἔχεις παρὰ σοί, P Oxy X. 1269.21 (early ii/A.D.) κιβωτὸς κειμένου παρακλειδίου, ";a coffer supplied with a false key"; (Edd.), and BGU III. 717.13 (A.D. 149) together with κόφινος. The word is apparently of Semitic origin (cf. Lewy Fremdwörter, p. 99 f.). It may be noted that Jos. c. Apion. i. 130 improves it into λάρναξ. For κιβωτός and κιβώτιον = ";book-chest,"; see Birt Buchrolle, p. 248. MGr ἓν κιβώτιον, ";a box.";
