Vocabulary of the Greek NT

in the wide sense of ";payment,"; ";rent,"; may be illustrated by such passages as P Giss I. 954 (A.D. 95) φ [ ]ρου οὗ ἐμίσθωσά σ ̣[οι ] ἐλαιομργίου, ";rent of the vineyard which I let to you,"; P Oxy X. 127919 (A.D. 139) φόρου τῶν <ν >ομῶν κατ᾽ ἔτος σὺν παντὶ δραχμῶν τεσσάρων, ";at the annual rent for the pastures of four drachmae in all"; (Edd.), id. XVII. 21412 (A.D. 208?) ἐξοδίασον εἰς φόρους ἐδαφῶν. . . ἀργυρίο [υ ] δραχμὰ [ς ] τριακοσίας, ";pay for rent of lands three hundred drachmae of silver,"; and P Tebt II. 37723, 27 (A.D. 210), which illustrates the common distinction between ἐκφόριον (";rent in kind";) and φόρος (";rent in money";) in leases of the Roman period; for exceptions see the editor’s note, and ib. 4246 (late iii/A.D.) ἴσθε δὲ ὅτι ὀφίλις φόρους καὶ ἀποφορὰς ἑπτὰ ἐτῶν, ὡς ἐὰ ̣<ν > μὴ ἀποκατασ tασίας [δ ]ὴ πέμψῃς [ο ]ἶδάς σου τὸ [ν ] κίνδυνον, ";let me tell you that you owe seven years’ rent and dues, so unless you now send discharges you know your danger."; (Edd.). In P Iand I. 2615 (A.D. 98) we have the phrase φό ̣ρου ̣ τοῦ πα ̣ν ̣τός, ";the total rent,"; for which the editor compares P Lond 90610 (A.D. 128) (= III. p. 108), P Fay 9313 (A.D. 161), al.
