Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For this common word it is sufficient to cite BGU II. 596.7 (A.D. 84) (= Selections, p. 64) ὅπως εἰς τὴν ἑωρτὴν (cf. John 13:29) περιστερείδι ̣α ἡμεῖν ἀγοράσηι, P Fay 118.16 (A.D. 110) ἀγόρασον τὰ ὀρνιθάρια τῆς εἱορτῆς, P Oxy III. 475.17 (A.D. 182) ἑορτῆς οὔσης ἐν τῇ Σενέ [πτα, ib. IV. 725.36. (contract of apprenticeship—A.D. 183) ἀργήσει δὲ ὁ παῖς εἰς λόγον ἑορτῶν κατ᾽ ἔτος ἡμέρας εἴκοσι, ";the boy shall have 20 holidays in the year on account of festivals"; (Edd.), ib. IX. 1185.29 (c. A.D. 200) τὴν τοῦ βασιλέως ἑορτὴν ἐπιτελείτωσαν, ";let them celebrate the festival of the sovereign";—perhaps his birthday : cf. τὴν ἑορτὴν. . ποιῆσαι, Acts 18:21 D. With ἑόρτασμα, LXX Wisdom of Solomon 19:16, cf. the adj. ἑορτάσιμος, P Giss I. 40ii. 20 (A.D. 212) ἑτέραις τισὶν ἑο ̣ρτασί [μοις ἡ ]μέραις, OGIS 524.7 ἐν ταῖς ἑορτασίμοις τῶν Σεβαστῶν ἡμέραις. A form ἑορτικός occurs P Strass I. 40.49 (A.D. 569). In P Tebt II. 417.24 ff. (iii/A.D.) μάθε τοῦ Μώρου ὅτι τί θέλις ἀγοράσομεν εἰς Ἀντινο ̣υ (l. -ο ̣ου), we may perhaps supply ἑορτήν, as in Jn l.c.
