Vocabulary of the Greek NT

πραγματεύομαι is common with reference to government officials, e.g. P Petr III. 36 verso.14 (iii/B.C.) τ ]οῖς α ̣̀λ ̣[λοις ] τοῖς πραγματευομένοις, ";to the others who are engaged in performing State business,"; P Hib I. 66.2 (B.C. 228) παρὰ τῶν τὴν δωρεὰν πραγματευομένων, ";with the managers of the δωρεά,"; P Grenf II. 37.5 (ii/i B.C.) τοῖς τὰ βασιλικὰ πραγματευομένοις χαίρειν, P Tebt II. 350.5 (A.D. 70–1) τοῖς τὸ ἐνκύκλιον πραγμα (τευομένοις), ";to the farmers of the tax on sales,"; and Syll 364 (= .3 797).10 (A.D. 37) ἔδοξεν τῇ βουλῇ καὶ τοῖς πραγματευομένοις παρ᾽ ἡμῖν Ῥωμαίοις. In ib. 492 (= .3 382).5 (ii/B.C.) the verb is used of a poet, who πεπραγμ [ ]τευται περί τε τὸ ἱερὸν καὶ τὴ [ν ] πόλιν τὴν Δηλίων καὶ τοὺς μύθου [ς ] τοὺς ἐπιχωρίους γέγραφεν. In Gnomon 70 (= BGU V. i p. 28) it is laid down that those discharging public duties are not to buy or lend ἐν οἷς π [ρ ]αγ [μ ]ατεύο [ντ ]αι τόποις, ";in the places where they discharge their official functions.";

In its only occurrence in the NT (Luke 19:13) πραγματεύομαι means ";trade,"; ";do business"; generally : cf. the ostracon Preisigke 2089 Ἡράκλειτος ὁ πραγματευόμενος τ [ ] συνηγορικὸν (";advocate’s fee";) καὶ ἐπι (δέκατον) . . ., and the subst. in P Oxy XVI. 1880.5 (A.D. 427) Κῦρος. . πρ [α ]γμ [α ]τε [υ ]τὴς ἀπὸ τῆς μ ̣ε ̣γ [α ]λ [οπ ]όλεως Ἀλεξ [α ]νδρίας, ";Cyrus trader of the metropolis Alexandria,"; where for the rendering ";trader"; the editors appeal to P Cairo Masp 67158.17 ἐρ ]γαστηριακῶν καὶ πραγματευτῶν, and P Lips I. 64.30 (c. A.D. 368) τοῦ πραγματευτικοῦ χρυσαργύρου, i.e. the trade-tax. For the verbal ἀπραγμάτευτος see P Par 33.15 (B.C. 161) (= UPZ i. p. 240) Ἀπολλωνίον ] . . . ἐν τῷ ἱερῷ ὄντο [ς ἀ ]πραγματεύτου, where Wilcken understands the meaning to be that Apollonius was no longer occupied with the particular matter in hand. In P Lond 33.21 (B.C. 161) (= I. p. 20) the editor prefers the meaning ";inexperienced."; For ἀπραγμοσύνη, see P Oxy I. 71ii. 16 (A.D. 303) περι [φ ]ρονοῦντές μου τῆς ἀπραγμ [οσύνης, and similarly P Amh II. 142.14 (iv/A.D.).
