Vocabulary of the Greek NT

σπορά in its only NT occurrence, 1 Peter 1:23, has the quasi-collective meaning ";seed"; : cf. P Leid Wxi. 51 (ii/iii A.D.) (= II. p. 121) ἐφάνη γέννα. . . πάντων κρατοῦσα σποράν, δι᾽ ἧς τὰ πάντα ἐσπάρη, ";semen, per quod omnia seminata sunt."; For the more regular usage ";a sowing"; of seed, we may cite such passages as BGU II. 586.11 (no date) τὴν τοῦ [ ]νεστῶτος ἔτους σποράν, P Ryl II. 168.6 (A.D. 120) (ἀρούρας) τρεῖς εἰς σπορὰν λαχάνου, P Grenf II. 57 (A.D. 168) τὴν ἐπικει [μέν ]ην σποράν, and P Oxy I. 103.9 (A.D. 316) ἄρουραν μείαν εἰς σπορὰν λινοκαλάμης ( ";fine flax"; : cf.
