Vocabulary of the Greek NT

P Oxy VI. 886 (iii/A.D.) (= Selections, p. 110 f.) contains a magical formula, purporting to be derived from a sacred book ἐν τοῖς τοῦ Ἑρμοῦ ταμίοις, while the method employed is concerned with the 29 letters, which were used by Hermes and by Isis, when she was seeking her brother and husband Osiris—δι᾽ ὧν ὁ Ἑρμῆς κὲ ἡ Ἶσις ζητοῦσα ἑαυτῆς τὸν ἀδελφὸν κὲ ἄνδρα Ὄσιρειν. In the curious astrological dialogue, P Rvl II. 63.5 (iii/A.D.), in which various parts of the body are connected with the sun, moon, planets, etc., the tongue, smell, and hearing belong to Hermes—Ἑρ ]μ ̣ο ̣υ ̣̑ γλῶσσα ὄσφρησις ἀκοή. For Ἑρμῆς as the name of a man, as in Romans 16:14, see OGIS 597.4 Διὶ Ἡλιοπολίτῃ παρὰ Ἑρμοῦ with the editor’s note; also Syll 753.2 (not older than A.D. 212) and the other exx. in Rouffiac Recherches, p. 91.
