For ὄπισθεν (Revelation 5:1—like Juvenal’s ";scriptus et in tergo necdum finitus Orestes"; : i. 6), cf. P Tebt I. 58 recto.37 (B.C. 111) τἀπίλοιπα ὀπείσωι, ";continued on the back,"; and similarly ib. 178 (late ii/B.C.). For another form of ";P.T.O."; we may cite P Rev Lxli. 13 (B.C. 259–8) ἔξω ὅρα. See also Meyer Ostr 61.15 (iii/B.C.) ὀπίσω, ";turn over,"; at the end of an account, though as a matter of fact nothing is written on the reverse side of the sheet, and BGU III. 1002.16 (B.C. 55), where, at the end of a contract, we find—ἐπεγράφησαν ἐκ τῶν ὀπίσω μαρτύρω <ν > (l. ἐκ τοῦ ὀπίσω μάρτυρες), with reference to the names of the sixteen witnesses on the back. The superlative ὀπιστωτάτη occurs in Preisigke 4308.5 (iii/B.C. ?), unfortunately with lacunae before and after. On the Hebraistic influence in such a phrase as ζητεῖν ὀπίσω τινός (Job 39:8) see Thackeray Gr. i. p. 47, and on the survival of (ὀ)πίσω in MGr cf. Moulton Proleg. p. 99.
