Vocabulary of the Greek NT

In a letter addressed by the quarrymen (οἱ λατόμοι) in Paston to the architect Kleon, P Petr II. 4 (9).3 (B.C. 255), they state that they have ";quarried out the rocks,"; and are now idle for want of slaves to clear the sand—λελατόμητ [α ]ι ἤδη, νυνὶ δὲ ἀργοῦμεν διὰ τὸ μὴ ἔχειν σώμ [α ]τα ὥστε ἀνακαθᾶραι τὴν ἄμμον : cf. Syll 803.25 (iii/B.C.) (λ)ατομήσας τὰ [ν ] πέτραν. For λατόμος see P Petr III. 47(a).2 εἰς λατόμους, OGIS 660.3 (A.D. 14–37) λατόμων πάντων τῆς Αἰγύπτου, and for λατομία see P Hib I. 71.7 (B.C. 245) a letter περὶ τ [ῶν ] ἀνακεχωρηκότων σωμάτων ἐκ τῆς ἐ ̣[ν ] Κεφαλαῖς λατομίας, ";about the slaves who have gone on strike from the stone-quarry at Cephalae."; Cf. also Wackernagel Hellenistica, p. 9 f., Anz Subsidia, p. 354 f. MGr λατομῶ.
