Vocabulary of the Greek NT

Hicks (CR i. p. 5 f.) has shown that πάροικος, while never losing the idea of ";a sojourner,"; ";a stranger"; (see s.vv. παροικέω, παροικία), is often found in the inscrr. in the sense of the classical μέτοικος to denote ";a licensed sojourner"; in a town, ";whose protection and status were secured by the payment of a small tax,"; as contrasted with ξένος, a mere passing stranger (cf. Ephesians 2:19). Add to Hicks’s reff., as bringing out the mixed character of the population in Graeco-Roman towns, an inscr. from Priene (cited by Rouffiac, p. 45), Priene 113.38 ff. (after B.C. 84), where Zosimus promises to invite τούς τε πολίτας πάντας καὶ πα [ροίκους καὶ κατοίκ ]ους καὶ Ῥωμαίους καὶ ξένους καὶ δούλους, and later is praised for offering them a festival, .42 ff. δειπνιεῖν γὰρ τοὺς πο [λ ]ίτας πάντας κατὰ φυλὰς καὶ τοὺς ἐφηβευκότας τῶν παροίκων καὶ κατ ̣ο ̣ίκων καὶ Ῥωμαίους πάντας καὶ τοὺς παρεπιδημοῦντας Ἀθηναίων κτλ.
