Vocabulary of the Greek NT

";put in its place,"; ";appoint,"; ";enrol,"; is seen in such passages as P Par 26.20 (B.C. 162) (= UPZ i. p. 248, Selections, p. 15) τῶν δὲ πρὸς τοῖς χειρισμοῖς ἐν τῶι Σαραπιείωι. . τεταγμένων, ";those who had been appointed to the administration in the Serapeum,"; P Oxy II. 259.3 (A.D. 23) τῷ τεταγμένῳ πρὸς τῇ τοῦ Διὸς φυλακῇ, ";governor of the prison of Zeus,"; P Fay 29.15 (notice of death–A.D. 37) ὅπως ταγῆι τ ̣ο ̣υ ̣[του ] ο ̣͗ν [ο ]μ ̣α ̣ ἐν τῆι τῶν [τετ ]ελευτηκότων τάξ [ει, ";that his name may be placed on the list of deceased persons,"; so ib. 30.13 (A.D. 173), P Oxy X. 1252 verso.30 (A.D. 288–95) τετράμηνος γὰρ ἐφ᾽ ἑκάστου τέτακτα ̣ι ̣, ";for a period of four months is allotted to each"; (Edd.), and PSI IV. 298.8 (beg. iv/A.D.) τὸν τεταγμένον χρόνο (ν).

In P Oxy II. 274.7 (A.D. 89–97) ὧν καὶ τὸ τέλος ἔταξαν, the verb is used of ";paying"; the succession duty, which in ii/B.C. was 5% : cf. PSI IV. 388.51 (B.C. 244–3) ἃ δεῖ τάξασθαι εἰς τὸ βασιλικόν, ib. I. 56.10 (A.D. 107) ὧν καὶ τάξομαι τὸ καθῆκον τέλος.

For a weakened sense of the verb see P Oxy VIII. 1159.16 (late iii/A.D.) τάξαι τοῖς ἀνθρώποις ὅτι πέμπω τὰ ἀναλώματα αὐτῶν, ";tell the men that I am sending the expenses for them"; (Ed.).

The mid. is also used = ";appoint for oneself"; in P Fay 129.3 (iii/A.D.) Ἀπολλῶτι συνέβαλον καὶ ἐτάξατο πάντως καταβῆναι τῇ ἑνδεκάτῃ καὶ τὴν παράδοσιν ποιήσασθαι, ";I arranged with Apollos, and he appointed for certain the eleventh for his coming down and making the delivery"; (Edd.), ib. 130.8 (iii/A.D.) προνοῶ τοῦ χ [α ]λκοῦ πά [ντη πάν ]τως καθὼς ἐταξάμη ̣[ν, ";I am by all means looking after the copper, as I arranged"; (Edd.) : cf. Matthew 28:16, Acts 28:23. Hence also the sense ";enter into an agreement with"; in such passages as P Hamb I. 25.11 (B.C. 238–7) Κάλας τέτακται συναντήσεσθαι πρὸς σὲ τῆι κ ̄ε ̄ τοῦ Χοίακ μη ̣ν ̣ο ̣(ς), and P Magd I. 12.5 (B.C. 217) ταξάμενοί μοι ἐπὶ Διονυσίου, ";they agreed verbally with me in the presence of Dionysius"; (see the editor’s note).
