Vocabulary of the Greek NT

θησαυρός, which survives in MGr, is very common = ";granary"; or ";storehouse"; for all kinds of agricultural produce, e.g. corn (P Ryl II. 231.8—A.D. 40) and wine (P Flor II. 194.6—A.D. 259) : cf. P Oxy I. 101.29 (A.D. 142) εἰς δημόσιον θησαυρόν, and Ostr 503 (A.D. 109–110) a receipt for a payment ὑπ (ὲρ) θησ (αυροῦ) ἱερῶ (ν). In P Tebt I. 6.27 (B.C. 140–39) in connexion with an Egyptian temple sums are collected—εἰς θησαυροὺς καὶ φιάλας καὶ ποτήρια : the meaning of θησαυρούς has caused the editors difficulty, but Otto (Priester i. P. 396) thinks that the ";collection-box"; is meant. A θησαυροφύλαξ is mentioned in P Fay 225 (ii/iii A.D.).
