Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For this common name it is sufficient to cite BGU IV. 1153i. 3 (a nursing contract—B.C. 14) ὥσ ]τ ̣ε ̣ τ ̣ι ̣θ ̣η ̣νεῖσθαι δ ̣ι ̣ ̣ τ ̣ῇς αὐτῆς Μ ̣α ̣ρ ̣θ ̣α ̣ς ̤ (cf..6), and ib. 1155.4 (payment of a debt—B.C. 10) παρὰ ] Μάρθας τῆς Πρωτάρχου.

On the form Μαρθίνη, as an adaptation to Hellenic surroundings, see the prayers for vengeance on the murderers of the Jewish girls Heraclea and Marthine from Rheneia (Magna Delos) c. B.C. 100, discussed by Deissmann LAE p. 423 ff
