Vocabulary of the Greek NT

This designation is given to a settlement of veteran soldiers, established by Severus and Caracalla in the neighbourhood of the village Kerkesoucha in the Fayûm, Chrest. I. 461 (beginning of iii/A.D.) : cf. also P Oxy III. 653 (A.D. 160–2) (κολωνεία bis) and ib. XII. 1508 (ii/A.D.), which throws light on the manner in which the land was obtained. On the whole position of these coloniae, see Wilcken Archiv v. p 433 f., and the introd. to P Giss I. 60, p. 29. A fourth century inscr. from Eaccaea, Kaibel 908.6, ends—εὐτυχίτω ἡ κολωνία.
