With this NT ἅπ. εἰρ. (1 Timothy 5:14) = ";bear a child,"; we may compare the similar compd. τεκνοποιέομαι in the marriage contract P Eleph 1.9 (B.C. 311–10) ( = Selections, p. 3), where the husband is bound down μηδὲ τεκνοποιεῖσθαι ἐξ ἄλλης γυναικός, ";not to beget children by another woman."; In UPZ i. 4.5 (B.C. 164) ἕνεκ [α ] τοῦ. . . τεκνοπ [ο ]ήσασθα (= θαι) αὐτήν, the meaning is ";adopt"; (cf. Wilcken’s note). See also s.v. τεκνογονία.
