Vocabulary of the Greek NT

It is hardly necessary to illustrate this word, but, as showing the housing conditions of the time, we may cite P Fay 31.15 (c. A.D. 129) where a woman applies to keepers of the archives at Arsinoe for leave to alienat πέμπτον μέρος, ";the fifth part"; of certain house property belonging to her. In the Gnomon 79 (= BGU V. 1. p. 31) it is laid down that in every temple (ἱερόν) where there is a shrine (ναός) there must be a prophet, who shall receive τῶν προσόδων τὸ π ̣[έμ ]πτον. For the form πέμτος cf. Ostr. 3.3, 4.4 (both A.D. 17–18), and see Mayser Gr. p. 166.
