This NT ἅπ. εἰρ. = ";owe besides or in addition"; (Philemon 1:10 : cf. Field Notes, p. 225) is common in our documents, although it is not always easy to distinguish it in meaning from the simple ὀφείλω : P Hib I. 110.36 (accounts—c, B.C. 270) προσωφείλησα σὺν [ἀνηλώμασ ̣ιν, ";I owed an additional sum with expenses,"; ib. 63.14 (c. B.C. 265) σὺ οὖν διόρθωσαι αὐτοῖς τὸ λ [ο ]ιπὸν ὃ προσοφείλεις μοι, ";do you therefore settle with them the remainder owing from you to me"; (Edd.), PSI IV. 360.7 (B.C. 252–1) ἵνα κο [μ ]ίσωνται τὸν προσοφειλόμενόν σοι σῖτον (with editor’s note), P Par 26.44 (B.C. 162) (= UPZ i. p. 248, Selections, p. 17) ἐπιλαβόντα παρ᾽ ἡμῶν τὴν γραφὴν τῶν ὀφειλομένων ἡμῖν δεόντων καὶ τίνα πρὸς τίνας χρόνους προσωφείληται καὶ ὑπὸ τίνων, ";when he has received from us the written list of the necessaries owing to us and what further debts are due us along with the periods for which they have been owing and the persons who owe them,"; and P Oxy I. 101.42 (A.D. 142) ὃ δ᾽ ἂν προσοφειλέσῃ ὁ μεμισθωμένος ἀποτεισάτω μεθ᾽ ἡμιολίας, ";any arrears owed by the lessee shall be paid with the addition of half their amount"; (Edd.).
