Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The late gen. πλοός, as in Acts 27:9, occurs in OGIS 572.21 (ii/A.D.) ὀφειλήσει τῷ δήμῳ ὑπὲρ ἑκάστου πλοός : cf. ib. 132.9 (B.C. 130) ἐπὶ τῶν πλῶν, and see Blass-Debrunner § 52. Other exx. of the word are P Oxy IV. 727.11 (A.D. 154) οὐ δυν [ ]μενοι κατὰ τὸ παρὸν τὸν ἰς Αἴγυπτον πλοῦν ποιήσασθ [α ]ι, and similarly P Tebt II. 317.10 (A.D. 174–5). In an inscr. from Hierapolis, Syll 872 (= .3 1229).3, we hear of a merchant who had made πλόας ἑβδομήκοντα δύο between Malea and Italy—an interesting ex. of the facilities of travel at the time.
