Vocabulary of the Greek NT

This late word (Matthew 21:12, Mark 11:15, John 2:15), which is condemned by the Atticists (cf. Rutherford NP p. 499) occurs in the census-paper P Petr III. 59 (a)i. 7 (Ptol.), where mention is made of κολλ ]υ ̣βισταὶ ς ̄. Its meaning ";money-changer"; is determined by κόλλυβος, which from denoting ";a small coin"; had come to be applied to the ";rate or premium of exchange"; : cf. the long papyrus roll of accounts P Goodsp Cairo 30v. 12 (A.D. 191–2), the payment of a tax—κο [λ ]ούβου, ";on exchange,"; P Fay 41i. 15, ii. 14 (A.D. 186), 56.7 (A.D. 106), and P Lond 372.7 (ii/A.D.) as published in P Tebt II. p. 339 (with the editors’ note) : see also Wilcken Ostr. i. p. 381. The subst. κολλυβιστήριον is found in the fragmentary P Tebt II. 485 (ii/B.C.) and the adj. κολλυβιστικός in BGU IV. 1118.23 (B.C. 22) διὰ τῆς Κάστορος κολλυβιστικῆς τραπέζης, al. (see further Preisigke Girowesen, p. 32). The word is of Semitic origin (Lewy Fremdwörter, p.119 f.).
