Vocabulary of the Greek NT

λειτουργικός is found in a taxation-roll P Petr II. 39 (e) (1).3 (iii/B.C.) λειτουργικὸν ι ̄γ ̄, where it is preceded by φυλακιτικόν (police-tax) and followed by ἰατρικόν (medical-tax) : cf. also P Tebt I. 5.49 (B.C. 118) ἀφει ]α ̣ͅσ ̣ε ̣ι ̣ δὲ π ̣α ̣ν ̣[τ ]ας καὶ τοῦ ὀφειλομένου λειτουργ [ι ]κοῦ, ";and they remit to every one the arrears of the work-tax"; (Edd.), ib. 102.3 (a receipt—B.C. 77 ?) διαγέγρ (αφας) τὸ λει (τουργικὸν) τοῦ δ (ἔτους), ";you have paid the work-tax of the 4th year"; (Edd.); the reference seems to be to a payment instead of personal service (cf. Wilcken Ostr. i. p. 382). The special sense of religious service, as in the LXX and NT (Hebrews 1:14), is seen in ib. 88.3 (B.C. 115–4) γραφὴν (l. γραφὴ) ἱερῶν καὶ πρ [οφ ]ητηῶν καὶ ἡμερῶν λειτουργικῶν, with reference to ";days of service"; rendered at the shrines at Kerkeosiris : see the editors’ introd., and cf. Wilcken Chrest. I. p. 94, Otto Priester ii. pp. 33 n..2, 39 n..2.
