Vocabulary of the Greek NT

κριτής is used of one designated by the Prefect to the office of ";judge,"; as in P Oxy IX. 1195.1 (A.D. 135) Ἀπολλωνίωι κριτῆι δοθέντι ὑπὸ Πετρωνίου Μαμερτείνου τοῦ κρατίστου ἡγεμόνος : it is also applied to this same Prefect himself in ib. IV. 726.20 (A.D. 135). Cf. also ib. I. 97.5 (A.D. 115–6) ἐπί τε πάσης ἐξουσίας καί παντὸς κριτοῦ. For the ";technical-political"; sense of the word, as frequently in the LXX, Wackernagel (Hellenistica, p. 11) cites OGIS 467.10 ἐπίλεκτον κριτὴν ἐκ τῶν ἐν Ῥώμῃ δεκουριῶν, compared with ib. 499.3 τῶν ἐκλέκτων ἐν Ῥώμῃ δικαστῶν, both ii/A.D. inscrr. from Asia Minor.
