Vocabulary of the Greek NT

P Hal I. 1.24 (mid. iii/B.C.) ὁ μαρτυρίας ἐπιλαμβανόμενος ἐπιλααμβανέσθω (l. ἐπιλαμ -) παραχρῆμα κτλ., P Fay 21.22 (A.D. 134) μαρτυρίαν ποιήσα ̣σ ̣θ ̣αι, ";to give evidence,"; P Ryl II. 116.18 (A.D. 194) ὅθεν ἐπιδίδωμι τόδε τὸ βιβλείδιον ἀξιῶν εἶναι ἐν καταχωρισμῷ πρὸς μαρτυρίαν, ";wherefore I present this petition, requesting that it may be registered as evidence"; (Edd.) : cf. also Syll 686 (= .31073).47 (after A.D. 117), an inscr. in honour of a pancratiast—ἀνδριάντα αὐτῷ ἐπὶ τῆς Ὀλυμπίας ἀναστῆσαι ἐπιγραφὴν ἔχοντα τήν τε τῶν ἄλλων ἀγώνων μαρτυρίαν καὶ δηλοῦσαν κτλ. In connexion with Revelation 1:9 τὴν μαρτυρίαν Ἰησοῦ Hort (ad l.) refers to Epict. iii. 24. 113 and i. 29. 46. A somewhat different sense appears in P Oxy I. 41.18 (iii/iv A.D.), where, in answer to a popular demonstration in his honour, the prytanis at Oxyrhynchus remonstrates—τάς δὲ τοιαύτα [ς ] μαρτυρίας ἀξιῶ εἰς καιρὸν ἔννομον ὑπερτεθῆναι, ";but I beg that these demonstrations be reserved for a statutory occasion.";
