Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For ψῆφος, ";a pebble,"; as in Rev. 2:17, cf. P Petr II. 13 (6).15 (B.C. 258–253) where, with reference to a stone contract, mention is made of removing τὰς ψήφους, by which the editor understands ";the pebbles lying over the rock to be quarried.";

From the use of pebbles in voting, the word comes readily to mean ";vote,"; ";number"; : cf. P Lips I. 105.19 (i/ii A.D.) ( = Chrest. I. p. 276) μὴ καταγειοχέναι (l. καταγηοχέναι) ἑκάσ ̣τ ̣[ου ] εἴδους τὴν ψῆφον, and ib. 64.38 (c. A.D. 368) ( = Chrest. I. p. 333) ὡς λίτραν χρυσίου ταῖς ταμιακαῖς ψήφοις δοῦναι προσταχθήσει.

For Rev. 13:18 cf. an inscr. edited by Cumont in REGr xv. (1902), p. 5, which concludes—(ἐν) ὀνόματι οὗ ἐστιν ψῆφος τξ ̄ε ̄ : see Wünsch AF, p. 23. Note also P Par 63viii. 25 (B.C. 164) τὴν ἐν χρόνῳ [βο ]υλευομ [ένη ]ν ψῆφον ἐ [ξε ]τάσοντα.
