For this verb construed with the acc. and inf., as in John 21:25, cf. P Eleph 13.6 (B.C. 223–2) οὐκ οἶμαι [δ᾽ αὐτὸν ἔχειν ἐξ ὧν ἡ μήτηρ αὐτοῦ ἀνήγγελλεν, P Petr III. 51.5 (Ptol.) τὸ ἀργύριον δ ὤιοντο ἀπολωλέναι ἐν τῶι μαρσιππίωι, ";the money which they thought had been lost in the purse"; (Edd.), and P Oxy XIV. 1666.2 (iii/A.D.) οἴομαι τὸν ἀδελφὸν Σαραπάμμωνα μεταδεδωκέναι ὑμεῖν δι᾽ ἣν αἰτίαν κατῆλθον εἰς Ἀλεξάνδρειαν, ";I think that my brother Sarapammon has told you the reason why I went down to Alexandria"; (Edd.). It is construed with the inf. alone, as in Philippians 1:17, in P Eleph 12.1 (B.C. 223–2) καθάπερ ὤιου δεῖν, P Flor III. 332.6 (ii/A.D.) οἰόμενος δύνασθαι τυχεῖν ἀδίκως πραγμάτων, and P Oxy VI. 898.24 (A.D. 123) οἰομένη ἐκ τούτου δύνασθαι ἐκφυγεῖν ἃ διέπραξεν, ";thinking by this means to escape the consequences of her misdeeds"; (Edd.). In these passages the underlying idea of the verb seems to be ";purpose,"; as frequently in later Greek : see Kennedy EGT ad Phil l.c., and cf. Schmid Attic. i. p. 128, Schweighäuser Lex. Polyb. s.v. Οἴομαι occurs in connexion with dreams in P Leid C i. 4 (B.C. 163–2) (= I. p. 118) οἴετο ἐν τῷ ὕπνῳ καταβαίνου, and P Par 50.15 (B.C. 160) οἴετο ἄνθρωπον λέγειν μοι · φέρε τὸ δέρμα τοῦ ποδός σου καὶ ἐγὼ δώσω σοι τὸ δέρμα τοῦ ποδός μου, also ib..17 ᾤμην οἰκίαν καθαίρεσθαι, καλλύνοντος αὐτήν. The root is *ὀ ϝ ις -ιο - : cf. Lat. ̯men, old Lat. ̯smen (*ou̯is–men) (Boisacq, p. 692).
