In Gnomon 41 (c. A.D. 150) it is laid down—ἐὰν Αἰγύπτιος ἐκ κοπρίας [ἀν ]ἐλ ̣ηται παῖδα καὶ τοῦτον υἱοποιήσηται, μετὰ θάνατον τεταρτολο ̣[γεῖτ ]αι, ";if an Egyptian shall take up a child from the dungheap, and adopt him as a son, he shall be mulcted after his death to the extent of one fourth of his property."; For παῖς applied to a female child see P Strass I. 41.9 (A.D. 250) ἐκδικῆσαι τὰ τῆς παιδός, and P Oxy I. 52.15 (A.D. 325) ε ̣[ἴ ]δαμεν τὴν παῖδα ἔχουσαν κατὰ τῶν εἰσχίων ἀμυχὰς μετὰ πελιωμάτων (see ib. II. p. 319), ";we saw that the girl had wounds on her hips with livid spots"; : cf. Luke 8:54 (for voc. of address see Proleg. pp. 70, 235).
The word is commonly applied to slaves, as in Luke 7:7 al., e.g. P Lille 27 (iii/B.C.), where 11 male slaves are enumerated under the heading παῖδες, then 2 female slaves, and then again 3 male slaves : cf. P Strass I. 40.24 (A.D. 569) Κολλοῦθος Βίκτορος φαμιλ ̣ι ̣α ̣ριος ἑδ ̣ρᾳῖος κατάδουλος παῖς, and P Iand 20.7 (vi/vii A.D.) ἔασον τὸν Μηνᾶν καὶ τὸν παῖδαν λαβεῖν, where the editor cites Usener, Epic. p. 168.10 ἀφίημι δὲ τῶν παίδων ἐλεύθερον Μῦν Νικίαν Λύκωνα. See also s.v. θεράπων.
