For οῖος without τοιοῦτος in the sense of ";such as,"; ";of what kind,"; as in Matthew 24:21 al., cf. P Oxy II. 278.18 (A.D. 17) ἀπ [οκα ]ταστησάτωι ὁ μα ̣νης τὸν μύλον ὑγιῆι καὶ ἀσινῆι, οῖον καὶ παρείληφεν, ";the servant shall restore the mill safe and uninjured in the condition in which he received it"; (Edd.), P Ryl II. 154.28 (A.D. 66) τὰ παράφερνα οῖα ἐὰν ἐκ τῆς τρίψεως ἐγβῆι, ";the parapherna as they emerge from wear and tear"; (Edd.). For οῖος used as a relative (cf. Proleg. p. 93), cf. P Lond 982.5 (iv/A.D.) (= III. p. 242) ἀφ᾽ οἵας γὰρ ἡμέρας ἀνήλ [θομεν ] ἀπὸ τῆς δοκιμασίας Ἀννιανοῦ, and see also the late P Lond IV. 1343.30 (A.D. 709) ὅπως μὴ εὕρωμεν κατ᾽ αὐτῶν ἀφορμὴν τὴν οἵαν οὖν, ";in order that we may not find any ground of complaint whatever against them."; In P Ryl II. 77.23, .25 (A.D. 192) we have the phrases οἷόν τ᾽ ἐστίν (cf. 4 Maccabees 4:7) and οὐκ οἷόν τ᾽ ἐστίν, unfortunately both in broken contexts, but see P Tebt II. 411.7 (ii/A.D.) οἷός τε ἦν καὶ προγράψαι εἰ μὴ ἐπηγγειλάμην σήμερόν σε παρέσασθαι, ";he (the epistrategus) might even have proscribed you, had I not promised that you would be present to-day"; (Edd.). According to Lob. Phryn. p. 372 οὐχ οἷον δὲ ὅτι (Romans 9:6) is to be understood as a strong negative equivalent to οὐ δήπου, ";not of course that,"; cf. Field Notes, p. 158. For οἷος used in an indirect question, as in 1 Thessalonians 1:5, cf. Epict. iv. 6. 4 καὶ ἡ προσποίησις ὅρα δι᾽ οἵων ἂν γένοιτο, ";and consider by what means you would achieve your pretence"; (Matheson).Οἷος survives in MGr in ὅ (γ)οιος, which is current in dialects : see Jannaris Gr. § 615, Thumb Handbook, p. 94.
