Vocabulary of the Greek NT

";a sound,"; ";a voice"; : cf. P Lond 1912.27 (A.D. 41) γνησιωτέραις ὑμᾶς φωναῖς προσαγορεύσας, ";addressing you more frankly by word of mouth,"; P Ryl II. 77.46 (A.D. 192) ἔχομεν δὴ φωνὴν τοῦ Ἀσπιδᾶ, ";we now have the declaration Oi Aspidas"; (Edd.). In one of the family letters of Paniskos (iii/iv A.D.) from the Michigan papyri edited by J. G. Winter in the Journ. Egypt. Arch. xiii. p. 72.21 we find πολλάκι [ς ] φωνὴν αυ ̣̓[τῷ ] ἐβά [λομ ]ε ̣ν ἵνα ἔλ ̣[θῃ ] πρὸς τὸν ἐπανορθωτὴ (ν) Ἀχιλλ [έα, ";we sent him word repeatedly that he might come to the epanorthotes Achilles";—a phrase for which the editor can find no parallel.

For the power of the divine voice cf. Wünsch AF p. 23.24 (iii/A.D.) διὰ φωνῆς προστάγματος, where the editor compares Psa. 32꞉9 [MT Psa. 33:9] αὐτὸς εἶπεν, καὶ ἐγενήθησαν. The word is used of Coptic speech in P Lond 77.13 (end vi/A.D.) (= I. p. 232) τῇ τῶν Αἰγυπτίων φωνῇ : cf. also P Giss I. 40ii .27 (A.D. 215) (= Chrest. I. p. 39).
