Vocabulary of the Greek NT

σημειόω in mid. = ";mark for oneself,"; sometimes with the idea of disapprobation attached as in its only NT occurrence 2 Thessalonians 3:14 : cf. Polyb. v. 78. 2 σημειωσάμενοι τὸ γεγονός with reference to a sinister omen, and see Lightfoot Notes, p. 133. The ordinary meaning is seen in such passages as Aristeas 148 παραδέδωκεν ὁ νομοθέτης σημειοῦσθαι τοῖς συνετοῖς εἶναι δικαίους, and OGIS 629.168 (A.D. 137) ὁ κράτιστος ἐσημ (ε)ιώσατο ἐν τῇ πρὸς Βάρβαρον ἐπιστολῇ.

The verb is regularly used for the signature to a receipt or formal notice in the papyri and the ostraca of the Imperial period (cf. Wilcken Ostr. i. p. 82 ff.) : P Oxy I. 39.4 (A.D. 52) ἀντίγραφον ἀπολύσεως. . . Φαρμοῦθ (ι) κ ̄θ ̄, σεσημ (ειωμένης), ";copy of a release signed on Pharmouthi 29, "; ib. II. 237vii. 29 (A.D. 186) where the prefect gives legal validity to the ὑπομνηματισμός by the words ἀνέγνων · σεσημ (είωμαι), ib. I. 65.6 (an order for arrest—iii/iv A.D.) ὅρα μὴ κατάσχητε τὸν ὑπηρέτη <ν >. σεση (μείωμαι), ";see that you do not detain the officer. Signed,"; and P Iand 37.25 (v/vi A.D.) στιχῖ μοι [ταύ ]την τὴν ἀποχὴν [σεσ ]η ̣μ ̣(είωμαι) ὡς πρόκ (ειται). The name is added in P Oxy XIV. 1750.17 (A.D. 306) <π >φοῦς σεσημ (είωμαι). For the compd. συσσημειόω, not in LS8. of. P Tebt II. 383.61 (A.D. 46) Κρονίων συνσεσημίωμαι —an authenticating signature. It may be added that σημείωσαι is used by the grammarians = ";nota bene.";

For the subst. σημείωσις cf. P Oxy II. 269i. 20 (A.D. 57) σημε <ι >ώσεω (ς) ἀντίγραφον, ib. IX. 1220.3 (iii/A.D.) διὰ σημει [ ]σεως, ";in some notes.";
