Vocabulary of the Greek NT

ἄμπελος is amply vouched for in the papyri, as in BGU IV. 111910, 11232 (both time of Augustus), and P Lond 9218 (late ii/iii A.D.) (= 111. p. 134) ἦσαν ἐν ἀμπέλῳ, ";planted with vines."; In P Petr I. 294 (iii/B.C.) πεφύτευται δὲ καὶ ἡ ἄμπελος πᾶσα, . is used in a collective sense : cf. P Flor I. 502 (A.D. 268) ἐξ ἴσου τῆ [ς ἀμπέ ]λου μεριζομένης. This use of ἄμπελος (so MGr ἀμπέλι) which makes it equivalent to ἀμπελών, occurs also in the Median parchments, P Saїd Khan (B.C. 88 and 22), deeds concerning the transfer of a ";vineyard,"; which is never called ἀμπελών in the documents. We may probably apply this use in Revelation 14:18-19, and perhaps in Didache 9:2.
