Vocabulary of the Greek NT

In an action before the Emperor Claudius in which Isidorus, the Gymnasiarch of Alexandria, raises a complaint against King Agrippa, the Emperor taunts Isidorus with the fact that he is the son of a female musician—ἀσφαλῶς [ ]κ μουσικῆς εἶ, Ἰσίδωρε, and receives the answer—ἐγ ]ὼ μὲν οὔκ εἰμι δοῦλος οὐδὲ μουσικῆς [υἱ ]ός, ἀλλὰ διασήμου πόλεως [ ]λεξαν [δρ ]εί [ας ] γυμνασίαρχος (Chrest. 1. 14iii. 8 ff.). From P Flor I. 74.6 (A.D. 181) συμφωνίας πάσης μουσικῶν τε καὶ ἄλλων, P Oxy X. 1275.9 (iii/A.D.) συμφωνίας αὐλητῶν καὶ μουσικῶν (cf. Revelation 18:22), T. Grassi (in SAM iii. p. 130) concludes that μουσικοί was not a merely general term, but denoted a special class of performers. Cf. however P Oxy III. 519.5 (account of public games—ii/A.D.) ὑπὲρ μου [σ ]ι [κῆς (δραχμαὶ) . . .
