Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The spelling λεγιών, which is always found in the NT occurrences of this Latin word (Matthew 26:53, Mark 5:9; Mark 5:15, Luke 8:30), is supported by numerous exx. in the papyri, e.g. P Lond 256 recto (a).3 (A.D. 15) (= II. p. 99) λεγιῶνος δευτέρας κἰκοστῆς (= καὶ εἰκοστῆς), BGU I. 140.7 (time of Hadrian) λεγιῶνο (ς) [β ̄], ib. 156.1 (A.D. 201) Διογένης στρατιώτης λεγιῶνος β ̄, P Oxy XIV. 1666.6 (iii/A.D.) γεγραφηκὼς περὶ τοῦ μεικροῦ Παυσανίου ὡς εἰς λεγιῶνα στρατευσάμενον, ";having written you about the little Pausanias becoming a soldier"; (Edd.), and BGU III. 899.1 (iv/A.D. ?) στρατιώτης λεγιόνω [ς ] (l. λεγιῶνος) πέμπτης Μακαιδωνικῆς (l. Μακεδονικῆς) : cf. also ib. I. 113.11 (A.D. 143) λ ]ε ̣γει [ῶν ]ος. The spelling λεγεών is also found—BGU IV. 1108.3 (B.C. 5) λ [ε ]γεῶν [ο ]ς, P Oxy II. 276.9 (A.D. 77) λεγεῶνος δευτέρας, BGU I. 21iii. 13 f. (A.D. 340) ὑπὸ τοῦ πραιποσίτου τῆς λεγεῶνος τῷ στρατιώτῃ τῆς λεγεῶνος, etc. See further Moulton Gr. ii. p. 76.
