Vocabulary of the Greek NT

Deissmann’s contention (LAE, p. 72) that this word is not to be regarded as a specifically NT word, but as belonging to the ordinary Greek of the time, receives further confirmation from such a passage as P Amh II. 92.19 (A.D. 162–3) οὐχ ἕξω δὲ κ [ο ]ινωνὸν οὐδὲ μίσθιον γ ̣ε ̣ν ̣[ ]μ ̣ε ̣νον τῆς ὠνῆς ὑποτελῆ. The editors translate, ";I will have no partner or servant who is liable on account of the contract,"; but Wilcken (Chrest. I. p. 370) from its association with κοινωνόν prefers to take μίσθιον as = ";tenant,"; ";sublessee."; The adj. is also found in P Flor III. 322.21 (A.D. 258 ?) μίσθιοι ξδ ̄.
