Vocabulary of the Greek NT

";old,"; is naturally very common in our sources. A few exx. will suffice—P Ryl II. 125.7 (A.D. 28–9) τειχαρίων παλαιῶ (ν), ";old walls,"; BGU IV. 1095.10 (A.D. 57) περὶ δὲ τοῦ φοίνικος παλαιὸν οὐχ εὕραμεν. . . τὰ δὲ νῆα (l. νέα) ἐν χ ̣ερσὶ γέγοναι, where dates which had been gathered for some time are contrasted with new, freshly gathered ones, P Oxy VIII. 1159.25 (late iii/A.D.) τὸ τυλάριον τ [ ] παλαιὸν τὸ ἐν τῷ συμποσίῳ ἄνω, ";the old cushion that is up in the dining-room,"; ib. XII. 1494.17 (early iv/A.D.) ἐλέ (= αί)ας κνίδια π ̣αλε (= αι), ";old jars of olives,"; and Ostr 1129.4 (A.D. 207) οἴνου π (αλαιοῦ ?), ";old wine,"; cf. 1 Corinthians 5:7 f. See also P Ryl II. 186.2 (late ii/A.D.) παλαιῶν ὀφλη (μάτων), ";ancient fines,"; i.e. arrears of fines incurred in lawsuits, and P Grenf II. 77.7 (iii/iv A.D.) (= Selections, p. 120) παλαιοῦ νομίσματος, ";old coinage,"; i.e. prior to the new coinage of Diocletian. The adj. is used with reference to time in BGU III. 903.9 (ii/A.D.) τοῖς παλαιοῖς χρόνοις. With 1 John 2:7 cf. P Giss I. 4.9 (A.D. 118) (= Chrest. I. p. 414) of land οὐκ ἐκ τοῦ παλαιοῦ π [ρο ]στάγματος γεωργεῖσθαι, and the Christian letter P Oxy XII. 1492.9 (iii/iv A.D.) κατὰ τὸ π ̣α ̣λ ̣[αιὸν ] ἔθος.

The compar. occurs in P Ryl II. 236.11 (A.D. 256) ἐχέτω δὲ τὰ παλαιότερα μανδάκια, ";let them have the older bundles,"; and adverbially in PSI IV. 349.6 (B.C. 254–3) ἀπεστάλκαμεν δὲ περὶ τούτου παλαίτερον (";a long time ago";).
