Vocabulary of the Greek NT

P Petr III. 37 (a).9 (B.C. 257) παρὰ τὴν λίμνην, ";along-side the lake,"; P Amh II. 100.3 (A.D. 198–211) an agreement concerning λίμνης [κα ]λουμέν [η ]ς Πάτρω [νο ]ς, P Flor I. 50.32 (A.D. 268) ἐπάνω λίμνης. In an ostracon letter of A.D. 192, published by Deissmann LAE p. 186, instructions are given that certain quantities of wheat are to be delivered to two ";husbandmen of the lake";—γεωργοῖς λίμνης, whose homes are in the village of Phmau (ἀπὸ Φμα ̣ : cf. Hebrews 13:24 οἱ ἀπὸ τῆς Ἰταλίας, where Deissmann thinks the reference is to people in Italy). See for the same ostracon Meyer Ostr. p. 176 f., where the editor identifies this λίμνη with Birket Habu near Thebes, and gives other instances of λίμνη as ";Seeland"; or ";Seegau.";
