Vocabulary of the Greek NT

μίσθωμα is not so common as we might have expected, but for the meaning ";rent,"; ";hire."; we may cite such a passage as Syll 831 (= .3 1200).15 (iv/iii B.C.) ὑποτελεῖ δὲ μίσθωμα Νικήρατος Κτησιφῶντι καθ᾽ ἕκαστον ἐνιαυτὸν ἀργυρίου δραχμὰς πεντα [κ ]οσίας ἀτελεῖς : cf. ib. 615 ( = .8 1024).38 (c. B.C. 200) μίσθωμα ἀποδιδ [ ]τω αὐτοῦ. We have the plur. in ib, 634 (=.3271).28 (B.C. 335–4) εἰς δὲ τὰ μι ]σθώματα τῆς πόμπης, i.e. ";ad apparatum pompae"; (Ed.). There seems to be no exact parallel to the usage in Acts 28:30, see Lightfoot Philippians 2:1-30 p. 9 n..3. For μίσθωσις, ";a letting for hire,"; cf. BGU III. 916.15 (time of Vespasian) ] μίσθωσις ἥδ᾽ ᾖ (cf. Proleg. p. 178) εἰς ἐνιαυτὸν [ ]να, P Fay 96.12 (A.D. 143) (= Chrest. I. p. 372) οὗ ἔχει ὁ Σύρος ἐν μισθώσει ἐλαιουργίου ";for the oil-press leased by Syrus,"; ib. .20 μενούσης κυρίας τῆς μισθώσεως ἐφ᾽ οἷς περιέχει πᾶσει, ";the lease in all its provisions remaining valid"; (Edd.), and P Oxy XIV. 1673 margin (ii/A.D.) τῶν ἀμπελουργῶν τὰς μισθώσις πέμψον, [ ]να τῆς ξυλοτομίας ἄρξωνται, ";send the leases of the vine-dressers, in order that they may begin the pruning"; (Edd.).
