Vocabulary of the Greek NT

P Strass I. 79.2 (a deed of sale—B.C. 16–15) κοράσιον δουλικόν, BGU III. 887.9 (A.D. 151) πέπρ [ακα τὸ ] κ ̣[ο ]ρ ̣[ ]σ ̣[ι ]ον δηναρίων τριακοσίων πεντή [κοντα, ib. 913.7 (A.D. 206) δουλικὸ [ν ] αὑτῆς κοράσιον –a female slave, and P Lond 331.5 (A.D. 165) (= II. p. 154), where a certain Cosmas is hired σὺν ἐπιστή (μοσι) . . . τρισὶ καὶ κορασίοις τέσσαρασι (l. τέσσαρσι), ";with three . . . and four girls"; (not ";lads"; as Ed.) to assist at a village-festival (see Wilcken Archiv i. p. 153, iii. p. 241). The word, which survives in MGr, is late and colloquial (cf. Sturz Dialect, p. 42 f.), and the idea of disparagement which old grammarians noticed (cf. Lob. Phryn. p. 73 ff., Rutherford NP, p. 148) reappears to some extent in the above papyri, though it is wanting in LXX and NT (";cum nulla εὐτελισμοῦ significatione";); see Kennedy Sources, p. 154.
