Vocabulary of the Greek NT

This NT ἅπ. εἰρ. (Luke 14:35) may be illustrated from P Oxy 1. 37i. 6 (A.D. 49) (= Selections, p. 49) Πεσοῦρις. . . ἀνεῖλεν ἀπὸ κοπρίας ἀρρενικὸν σωμάτιον ὄνομα Ἡρακ [λᾶν, ";Pesouris picked up from the dung-heap a male foundling named Heraclas,"; P Ryl II. 162.17 (A.D. 159) βορρᾶ κοπρία, ";on the north a dung-heap."; On this word as common to the NT and the comic poets, see Kennedy Sources, p. 72 ff. : it survives in MGr. The wider usage of κοπρία to denote the spot where all kinds of rubbish are gathered together is discussed by Wilcken Archiv ii. p. 311 f.
