κοπή is common in the papyri = ";cutting,"; e.g. P Oxy II. 280.17 (A.D. 88–9) τὸ μὲν ἥμισυ εἰς ἄρωσιν τὸ δὲ ἕτερον ἥμισυ εἰς κοπήν, ";the half for ploughing, the other half for cutting,"; ib. III. 499.15 (A.D. 121) χόρτον εἰς κοπὴν καὶ ἐπινομήν, ";grass for cutting and grazing."; In P Rev Lxiv. 5 (B.C. 259) οἱ κοπεῖς are the men who cut the crop in an oil-factory—a new sense of the word. See also s.v. θρίξ, and for the impost called κοπὴ τριχός cf. P Tebt II. p. 96. In a curious medical questionnaire, certainly later than ii/A.D., we find—τί ἐστιν κ [οπή ]; [ἡ τῶν ] σωμάτων τομή (see Archiv ii. p. 1 ff.).
