b. specifically, a body of soldiers, a corps: 2 Samuel 23:13; Xenophon, mem. 3, 1, 11; often in Polybius; Diodorus 17, 80; Josephus, b. j. 1, 9, 1; 3, 4, 2; (especially for the Roman 'legio' (examples in Sophocles Lexicon, under the word, 3)); hence, universally, a band, troop, class: ἕκαστος ἐν τῷ ἰδίῳ τάγματι (the same words occur in Clement of Rome, 1 Cor. 37, 3 [ET] and 41, 1 [ET]), 1 Corinthians 15:23, where Paul specifies several distinct bands or classes of those raised from the dead (A. V. order. Of the 'order' of the Essenes in Josephus, b. j. 2, 8, 3. 8).

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

(indef. pron.), ";someone,"; ";something"; : P Vat A.17 (B.C. 168) (= UPZ i. p. 303) πᾶς τις πειρᾶται. . ., P Lond 42.16 (B.C. 168) (= Selections, p. 10) εἰς πᾶν τι ἐληλυθυῖα διὰ τὴν τοῦ σίτου τιμήν, ";having come to the last extremity because of the high price of corn,"; P Oxy IV. 742.10 (B.C. 2) ἐάν τι δύνῃ. . . δὸς ἐργασία [ν, ";if you can, give your attention to it"; (Edd.), ib. I. 120.4 (iv/A.D.) τινα ὁρῶντα αἱαυτὸν (l. ἑαυτὸν) ἐν δυστυχίᾳ, ";a man finding himself in adversity,"; .12 ἀποστῖλόν μοί τινα ἢ Γοῦν ̣θον ἢ Ἀμμώνιον, ";send someone to me, either Gunthus or Ammonius"; (Edd.). P Oxy VI. 937.22 (iii/A.D.) γ ]ράψον ἐκεῖ τὸ κατ᾽ εἶδος ὅτι τι καί τι εἴληφας is translated by the editors ";write the list there, that you have received so and so."; They remark that it is simpler to take τι καί τι as analogous to τὸ καὶ τό than ";to take τί καὶ τί as an indirect interrogative, ὅτι being redundant.";

For τις used to denote an unspecified name, cf. P Oxy VII. 1034.1ff. (ii/A.D.) κληρονόμους καταλείπω τὴν θυγατέρ [α ] μου τινὰ καὶ τὸν íτον ý σύντροφον αὐτῆς τινὰ καί τινα, τὸν μέν τινα ἧς προϋπήλλαξα. . . οἰκίας καὶ αὐλῆς, ";I leave as my heirs my daughter x and her foster-brother y and z, z of the house and court which I previously mortgaged"; (Ed.), and ib. III. 509.1 (late ii/A.D.) τίς τινι χαίρει [ν, ";A to B, greeting"; (Edd.). A good parallel to Acts 5:36 is afforded by P Leid Wvii. 25 (ii/iii A.D.) (= II. p. 103) διαπεράσεις τὸ πέρα, ὅτι ἐγώ ἰμί (l. εἰμί) τις : cf. also Herodas VI. 54 ἦν μέν κοτ᾽, ἦν τις, ἀλλὰ νῦν γεγήρακε, ";he once cut a figure, only now he has grown old"; (see Headlam’s note).

For τίς ποτε see P Oxy IV. 745.7 (c. A.D. 1) μοι ἐχρήσατο. . οὐχ ὡς λύσα <ν >τι ἀλλ᾽ ὥς τινί ποτε ἀποστερητῆι μὴ ἀποδεδωκότι, ";he treated me not like a man who had paid but like a defrauder and a debtor"; (Edd.), and ib. XIV. 1680.13 ff. (iii/iv A.D.) ὑπονοοῦμαι ὅτι πάντως πάλιν τί ποτε ἔχει πρὸς σέ. [εἴ τ ]ι ̣ ποτε αὐτῷ χρεωστεῖς. . ., ";I suspect that he must have some further claim against you. If you owe him anything. . ."; MGr has retained τίποτε (in a variety of forms, Thumb Handb. p. 358), while discarding most forms of τις (ib. p. 95 f.).

With μήτιγε βιωτικά, ";not to speak of mere affairs of daily life,"; in 1 Corinthians 6:3 cf. P Lond 42.23 (B.C. 168) (= I. p. 30, UPZ i. p. 300, Selections, p. 10) μὴ ὅτι γε τοσούτου χρόνου ἐπιγεγονότος, ";not to speak of so much time having gone by"; : see Proleg. p. 240.

J. H. Moulton (Proleg. p. 59) thinks that the very difficult εἴ τις σπλάγχνα καὶ οἰκτιρμοί of Philippians 2:1, involving as it does both number and gender, may be illustrated from P Par 15.15 (B.C. 120) ἐπί τι μίαν τῶν. . οἰκιῶν, and BGU I. 326ii. 9 (A.D. 194) εἰ δέ τι πε [ρ ]ισσὰ γράμματα. . . [καταλίπω. He prefers, however, the suggestion of Blass, and independently of Kennedy (EGT ad l.), to read εἴ τι throughout in the sense of si quid valet : see also Proleg. p. 244 for Rouse’s reference for indeclinable τι to MGr κάτι, as κάτι ἡσυχία, ";a little rest.";
