Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For this NT ἅπ. εἰρ. (Acts 22:25 : cf. Ev. Petr. 3) see P Lille I. 29i. 15 (fragment of a code—iii/B.C.) μηδὲ στίζειν, μηδ ̣[ ] μ ̣α ̣[στ ] [ζε ]ι [ν, ";neither to brand nor to flog them";; but the reading is very doubtful, see Chrest, II. p. 412. The verb is used figuratively in Kaibel 303.5 μαστίξωσι λόγοις.
