πτῶμα in the NT is confined to its late sense (cf. Rutherford NP p. 472 f.) of ";a dead body"; : cf. the collective sing., as in Revelation 11:8, in Syll 318 (= .3 700).17 (B.C. 118) ἐτρέ [ψ ]ατο τοὺς ὑπεναντίους καὶ τοῦ τε πτώματος ἐκράτησεν καὶ πο [λ ]λοὺς αὐτῶν ἀπέκτεινεν. See also Kaibel 326.5 where a man guards against ἕτερον πτῶμα being placed in his family tomb.
For the meaning ";ruin"; of a building, cf. P Oxy I. 52.12 (A.D. 325) ἐκ τοῦ συμβάντος πτώματος τῆς οἰκίας αὐτοῦ. The word is also used of ";payments"; falling due as in P Eleph 11.4 (B.C. 223–2) ἐ [ν οἷς ἔτε ]σιν τὰ πτώματα γέγονεν, and in P Lond 3.37 (B.C. 146 or 135) (= I. p. 47). See further Archiv i. p. 87. In a series of farm-accounts, P Fay 102.20 (c. A.D. 105), certain boys are described as διαλέγοντες πτῶμα, which the editors think may refer to ";gleaning.";
