This common poetic word, which in the NT is found only in the plur. (Matthew 20:24, Mark 8:23), may be illustrated from the address in the Serapeum-dream P Par 51.10 (B.C. 160) (= Selections, p. 19) ὄμμα. . ψυχῆς θάρσ [ει, from the personal descriptions P Leid M i. 6 (ii/B.C.)

(= I. p. 95) ὄμμα φοβερόν. It may also be noted that in an address by the council of Hermopolis to the Imperial Procurator of the time of Gallienus, Eurip. Ion 732 is quoted in the form—εἰς ὄμματ᾽ εὔνου ἀνδρὸς ἐμβλέπειν γλυκύ) (CP Herm I. 125.7 = Chrest. I. p. 59).
