Vocabulary of the Greek NT

A few examples will suffice of this very common verb—P Fay 11.6 (c. B.C. 115) ἐδάνεισα [Θεοτ ]ε ̣ίμῳ . . . πυρῶν ἀρ (τάβας ) [ζ ̄ (ἥμισυ )], ";I lent to Theotimus 7½ artabae of wheat,"; P Cairo Preis 43.10 (A.D. 59) δρ ]α ̣χμὰς . . . [ἃς ἐδ ]άνεισεν α [ὐτ ] , P Oxy III. 485.12 (A.D. 178) ἐδάνεισα κατὰ δημόσιον χρηματισμόν , ";I lent in accordance with a public deed,"; ib. 510.6 (A.D. 101) ἃς ἐδάνεισεν αὐτοῖς κατὰ δανείου συνγραφήν , ";which he lent to them in accordance with a contract of loan."; For the middle, see P Oxy IV. 836 (i/B.C.) ἀποδότωσαν δὲ οἱ δεδανεισμένοι Θ . τὰς τριάκοντα δύο ἀρτάβας τῶν πυρῶν , ";but let the borrowers restore to T. the thirty-two artabae of wheat,"; ib. X. 1281.5 (A.D. 21) δεδάνισμαι τὴν τειμήν , ";I have borrowed the price,"; ib. III. 471.91 (ii/A.D.) ὥστε καὶ ἐπίδειξις ἦν αὐτῶι πρὸς τοὺς δανειζομένους ἃ ἔπραττεν , ";showed off to the borrowers what he had been doing (Edd.). P Flor I. 1.3 (A.D. 153) combines them—δραχμὰς διακοσίας ἃς ἀνείρηται ἡ δεδανισμένη παρὰ τῆς δεδανικυίης .

Wackernagel ThLZ 1908, Sp. 637, observes that the new future δανιῶ in LXX proves that itacisim goes back to the translators and not merely the scribes. Δανείζω could not make an ";Attic future"; δανιῶ until the last vestige of difference between ει and ι had gone.
