Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For this word in its late Greek sense ";street,"; ";lane,"; which it has in its four occurrences in the NT (Matthew 6:2, Luke 14:21, Acts 9:11; Acts 12:10), cf. P Par 51.16 (B.C. 159) (= UPZ i. p. 360, Selections, p. 20) ἔρχομαι εἰς τὴν ῥύβ (= μ)ην μετ᾽ αὐτῶν, BGU IV.1037.16 (A.D. 47) εἰς τὴν ἐκ λιβὸς ῥύμην βασιλική [ν, P Oxy1. 99.9 (A.D. 55) ἀνὰ μέσον οὔσης τυφλῆς ῥύμης (";blind alley";), and P Ryl II. 156.4 (i/A.D.) δημοσία ῥύμη. In an Alexandrian papyrus of the time of Augustus we hear of a street named Εὐδαίμωνἐν τῆι Εὐδαίμονος λεγομένηι ῥύμηι (see Archiv v. p. 37 n..1). For the diminutive ῥύμιον (not in LS8) = ";a little lane"; or ";alley,"; cf. the direction in P Meyer 20 verso.5 (1st half iii/A.D.) ἀντικρὺ του ̣̑ [. . .] πωλ ̣ι ̣ου ἥκ ̣εις <εἰς > τὸ ῥύμιον, ";over against the shop you come to the little lane.";

See further Rutherford NP p. 487 f., and Kennedy Sources p. 15 f., where the different stages in the history of ῥύμη are stated.
