The use of οἰκέτης to denote"; a household or domestic slave"; (Lat. famulus) in Luke 16:13 οὐδεὶς οἰκέτης δύναται δυσὶ κυρίοις δουλεύειν, ";no domestic can be a slave to two masters,"; is well illustrated by P Lille I. 29i. 2 (iii/B.C.) ἐὰν δέ τις περὶ ἀδικήματος ἑ [τέ ]ρο [υ ] οἰκέτηι ὄντι δίκην γραψάμενος, ὡς ἐλευθέρωι, καταδικάσηται, ἐξέστω τῶι κυρίωι ἀναδικῆσαι ἐν ἡμέραις ε ̄, ";si quelqu’un en raison d’un dommage a intenté une action à l’esclave d’un autre, comme à un homme libre, et l’a fait condamner, qu’il soit permis au maître de l’esclave d’interjeter appel dans un délai de cinq jours"; (Ed.). For the adj. οἰκετικός, see P Grenf I. 21.6 (B.C. 126) ἀπὸ τῶν οἰκετικῶν σωμάτων δ ̄. On the different terms for ";slave"; in the NT, see Trench Syn. § ix., and cf. Thackeray Gr. i. p. 7 f.
