Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For the subst. see the important P Par 63iii. 90 (B.C. 165) καὶ τὰς ἀποσκευὰς τῶν ἐν τῆι πόλει περισπᾶν, where Mahaffy (P Petr III. p. 27) renders, ";and that you should distrain the furniture of those in the city";; cf. ibvii. 7 ταῖς ἀποσκευαῖς αὐτῶν ἐπιγεγράφθαι γῆν. The verb is not a NT word (Acts 21:15 in 33 and a few cursives).
