Vocabulary of the Greek NT

κτῆνος, mostly in plur. ";flocks and herds,"; is common, e.g. P Tebt I. 56.8 (late ii/B.C.) οὐκ ἔχομεν ἕως τῆς τροφῆς τ ̣ω ̣ν κτηνῶν ήμῶν, ";we have not so much as food for our cattle"; (Edd.), P Ryl II. 126.15 (A.D. 28–9) τὰ ἑατοῦ πρόβατα καὶ βοικὰ κτήνη. For the more specialized sense ";beast of burden,"; (as in Luke 10:34, Acts 23:24) cf. BGU III. 912.24 (A.D. 33) τὰ ὀνικὰ κτήνη, P Fay III.6 (A.D. 95–6) (= Selections, p. 66) ἐργατικὰ κτήνη δέκα, P Oxy XIV. 1756.10 (c. i/A.D.) ἐὰν τὰ κτήνη ἐξέρχηται ἐπὶ γράστιν (";green fodder";), πέμψω σοι ἐλαίαν : cf. also M. Anton. v. 11 where κτῆνος, ";a domestic animal,"; is contrasted with θηρίον, ";a wild beast."; The adj. κτηνοτρόφος occurs several times in the Fayûm papyri and ostraca, e.g. 18(b).2 (i/B.C.) : cf. LXX Numbers 32:4 where it is applied to land.
