Vocabulary of the Greek NT

With the use of ὀψάριον to denote fish eaten as a titbit along with bread in John 6:9; John 6:11; John 21:9 ff. (cf. Tobit 2:2 S), cf. BGU IV. 1095.17 (A.D. 57), where after the mention of bread and pigeons we read of a λαγύνιον ταριχηροῦ (= ῶν) ὀψαρίων, ";a jar of pickled fish"; : see further P Oxy IV. 736.52 (a private account—c. A.D. 1) ὀψαρί [ο ]υ (ὀβολός), ";sauce 1 ob.";, P Ryl II. 229.21 (A.D. 38) τοὺς ἄρτους μοι πέμψον καὶ τὸ ὀψάριον, ";send me the loaves and the relish,"; P Fay 119.31 (c. A.D. 100) εἰς τὰ γενέσια Γεμέλλ [ης ] πέμψις ὠψάρ [ι ]α ̣ καὶ. . .. . . καὶ ἄρτον (πυροῦ ἀρτάβην) α ̄, ";for Gemella’s birthday feast send some delicacies . . . and an artaba of wheaten bread,"; and the late P Lond 483.77 (A.D. 616) (= II. p. 328) ὀψάρια ἐκ τῶν παντοίων ὑδάτων. For the word in a more general sense cf. P Oxy III. 531.18 (ii/A.D.), where a father, after bestowing good advice on his son, adds τοῖς ὀψαρίοις ἐξήλλαξας ἡμᾶς, ";you won me over by the dainties"; (Edd.). From the inscrr. we may cite OGIS 484.16 (ii/A.D.) τῶν λεπτῶν ὀψαρίων, and the mention in the same document l..21 of an ὀψαριοπώλης. The simple ὄψον (Tobit 2:2; Tobit 7:8) occurs in P Hib I. 54.28 (c. B.C. 245) λάχανα π [αντ ]ο ̣δαπὰ καὶ ἐὰν ὄψον τι ἔχ ̣η ̣ι ̣[̓, ";vegetables of all kinds, and some delicacies if you have any"; (Edd.), P Tebt II. 563 (account—early i/A.D.) ἄρτων κ ̄, ὄψου κ ̄ε ̄, and the double diminutive ὀψαρίδιον in P Oxy VII. 1067.28 (iii/A.D.) ἀγόρασόν μοι ὀψαρίδιον ἐκ τῆς θαλάσσης (cf. Numbers 11:22 πᾶν τὸ ὄψος τῆς θαλάσσης). The MGr ψάρι, ";fish,"; shows aphaeresis, which reveals the derivation from ψωμός, ";morsel,"; and ψάω (Boisacq, pp. 737, 1076).
