Vocabulary of the Greek NT

Dr Nägeli (cf. p. 36) kindly supplies us with the following instances of the use of this word in the inscrr. and papyri : Michel 913 (ii/B.C.) (= CIG 3088) . . . ὑποβολῆς Ζωΐλος Ζωΐλου · ἀναγνώσεως, Ζωΐλος Ζωΐλου κτλ. (according to the commentary in CIG ὑποβολῆς, in sense of ῥαψῳδίας, is dependent on ἀνταποδόσεως) ; CPR I., p. 59 (a loan on a house—beginning of iv/A.D.) ἐπὰν μὴ ἀποδῶ τοκῖν (fut. of τοκίζω, with -ῖν for -ιεῖν, and act. for mid.) σοι ἐπιγνώσωμαι (l. -ομαι) τοῦ ὑπερπίπτοντος χρόνο υ ἄχρις ἀνταποδώσεως, where the editor translates, ";wenn nicht, so verstehe ich mich für die Überzeit bis zur Rückerstattung dazu, sie Dir zu verzinsen."; Its literary record is unexceptionable.
