(1) ";sign,"; ";seal"; : cf. P Rev Lxxvi. 5 (B.C. 259–8) ἀποδειξάτωσαν ] τὸ ἐπιβ [λ ]ηθὲν σημεῖον ἀσινέ [ς, ";let them exhibit the seal which has been appended unbroken.";
(2) ";outward distinguishing mark"; : cf. P Par 18bis .10 (Roman) ἔστιν δὲ σημεῖον τῆς ταφῆς, BGU II. 427.30 (A.D. 159) πέπρακα τὸν κάμηλον θήλιαν, ο [ὗ ] τὸ σημεῖον πρόκιται, and Preisigke 5679.6 (A.D. 307) ὄνου λευ ]κῆς οὔσ ̣ης, ἐχούσης σημεῖον ̣ [ἐ ]πὶ [τοῦ τραχή ]λου. Similarly of a bodily ";mark"; disqualifying from the priesthood—ib. 15.27 (A.D. 155–6) Ἀγα ̣[θ ]οκλῆς ἐπύθετο, εἴ τινα σημεῖα ἔχουσιν [οἱ παῖδες ἐπὶ τοῦ σώματος, BGU I. 347.14 (A.D. 171 ) (= Chrest. I. p. 105) Σερηνια [νὸς ] ἐπ ̣ύθετο. . . εἰ [σ ]ημ ̣[εῖο ]ν ̣ ἔχοι ὁ [παῖ ]ς. εἰπόντων ἄσημον αὐτὸν εἶναι. . . ἀρχιερεὺς. . . ἐκέλευσεν τὸν παῖ [δα περιτ ]μηθῆναι [κατὰ ] τὸ ἔθος, and so ib. 82.9 (A.D. 185). In P Amh II. 39.2 (late ii/B.C.) A military corps of youths are described as οἱ [ἐκ ] τοῦ σημείου νεανίσκοι, and for σημεῖον as an index of inward character, as in 2 Corinthians 12:12, cf. a rescript of Hadrian Syll 384 (= .3 831).14 (A.D. 117) ἡγούμην σημεῖα ἀγαθῶν ἀνδρῶν τὰ τοιαῦτα εἶναι.
(3) In P Oxy II. 293.6 (A.D. 27) οὔτε διὰ γραπτοῦ οὔτε διὰ σημε <ί >ου, the editors understand the meaning to be ";either by letter or by message,"; and so Wilcken Archiv iv. p. 259. Similarly in P Fay 128.6 (iii/A.D.), P Oxy IV. 724.3 (A.D. 155) of tachygraphic signs. In ib. XIV. 1635.9 (B.C. 44–37), a document dealing with the cession of catoecic land, τοῖς ἄλλοις σημείοις seems to refer to ";boundary-marks"; rather than to ";title-deeds"; : cf. ib. III. 504.15 (early ii/A.D.) and the note to P Ryl II. 159.15. See also Syll 929 (= .3 685).70, .75 (B.C. 139).
(4) For σημεῖον in its NT sense of ";miracle"; or ";wonder"; (Matthew 12:38 f., al.), we may cite Syll 326 (= .3 709).25 (c. B.C. 107) προεσάμανε μὲν τὰν μέλλουσαν γίνεσθαι πρᾶξιν [διὰ τ ]ῶν ἐν τῶι ἱερῶι γενομένων σαμείων, and for the meaning ";proof,"; see the illiterate P Oxy XIV. 1683.18 (late iv/A.D.) σημίου δὲ χάριν. Deissmann (LAE2, p. 167) has pointed out that in 2 Thessalonians 3:17 σημεῖον has the same force as the σύμβολον which in other cases was given to the bearer of a letter in proof of his commission, cf. e.g. P Passalacqua.15 (iii/B.C.) (= Witkowski Epp..2, p. 54) ἀπεδόθη τάδ᾽ αὐτῶι καὶ τὸ σύμβολον τῶν ἐγ.
