Vocabulary of the Greek NT

P Grenf II. 77.30 (iii/iv A.D.) (= Selections, p. 121) τῆς ὅλης δα [πά ]νης, ";the whole outlay,"; P Oxy VI. 903.4 (iv/A.D.) ἐπὶ ὅλας ἑ [πτ ]ὰ ἡμέρας, ";for seven whole days,"; and Priene 112.98 (after B.C. 84) διὰ τοῦ χειμῶνος ὅλου, ";during the whole winter"; (cf. Luke 5:5). See also P Thead 3.31 (A.D. 299), where, at the end of a deed of sale, the vendor announces—ἔγραψα τὰ ὅλα. With the use of ὅλος in John 9:34; John 13:10, we may compare P Fay 119.6 (c. A.D. 100) χόρτον σαπρὸν καὶ ὥλον (l. ὅλον) λελυμένον, ";rotten hay, the whole of it decayed"; (Edd.). Other exx. are P Tebt I. 33.16 (B.C. 112) (= Selections, p. 31), where the instructions for the entertainment of a Roman visitor are summed up in the words—τὸ δ᾽ ὅλον ἐ ̣π ̣ι ̣, π ̣α ̣ν ̣[των ] τὴν μεγίστην φροντίδα ποιουμένου τοῦ εὐδοκοῦν ̣[τ ]α ̣ τὸν α ̣̀ν ̣δ ̣ρ ̣α ̣ κατασταθῆ [ναι, ";in general take the greatest pains in everything that the visitor may be satisfied"; (Edd.). P Ryl II. 133.19 (A.D. 33) ἐξ οὗ κινδυνεύει τῷ ὅλωι ἐξαρθῆνα [ι, ";whereby there is a risk of its (viz. a dam’s) being entirely carried away"; (Edd.), and ill. 152 .14 (A.D. 42) τοῖς ὅλιος ἠφάνισαν, ";utterly destroyed it,"; of damage done by an inroad of sheep. In P Oxy VI. 936.20 (iii/A.D.) οὐδὲ Φιλόξενον ὅλ᾽ ἐξ ὅλων οὐχ ̣ εὗρον, the editors render, ";I have entirely failed to find Philoxenus,"; and compare ib. 893.6 (vi/vii A.D.) οὐδέν [α ] λόγον ὑπὲρ οἱασδήποτε ὅλον τὸ σύνολον πράγματος, ";no ground of complaint on any matter of any kind whatsoever."; For the interchange of ὅλος and πᾶς cf. P Tebt II. 418.4 (iii/A.D.) πρὸ τῶν ὅλων τὸ προσκύνημά σου ποιῶ, for the usual πρὸ πάντων, P Lond 404.15 (c. A.D. 346) (=II. p. 305) ἀσπάζομαι. . . πάντας τοὺς ἐν τῇ οἰκίᾳ ὅλους κατ᾽ ὄνομα, and P Iand 13.20 (iv/A.D.) πάντες οἱ ἀδελφοί σου κατ᾽ ὄνομα ὅλ [οι. . . For δι᾽ ὅλου, as in John 19:23, see P Oxy I. 53.10 (A.D. 316) where a persea tree is reported on as διόλου ξηραντῖσαν, ";quite dried up."; Διόλου is found in Cercidas (iii/B.C.), and survives in MGr. In MGr ὅλος in many districts takes the form οὕλος (Thumb Handbook, p. 97), which is similar to the Ionic and Epic form οὖλος, from *ὁλ Ϝ ος : cf. Lat. salvus, solidus (Boisacq, p. 699).

We may add that the compound ὁλοσχερής is fully illustrated in Linde Epic. p. 13 f. : for the adv. see Cicero ad Att. vi. 5. 2.
