ὄγδοος, originally ὄγδο ϝ ος, does not contract in any of its NT occurrences, and this is the general rule in the papyri and inscriptions, e.g. P Grenf I. 10.1 (B.C. 174) ἔτους ὀγδόου, OGIS 90.29 (Rosetta stone—B.C. 196) ἕως τοῦ ὀγδόου ἔτους. Cf. however P Eud 4.19 (before B.C. 165) ὄγδουν beside ὀγδόης, and ib. 14.3 ὄγδου (cited in Mayser Gr. p. 294), and see also OGIS 332.14 (B.C. 138–2) τὴν δὲ ὀγδόην, of the eighth day of the month.
