Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For μνημονεύω, ";remember,"; c. gen., as in 1 Thessalonians 1:8 (see Milligan ad l.), cf. PSI VI. 651.2 (iii/B.C.) καλῶς ἂ ]ν ποιοῖς (cf. Mayser Gr. p. 326) μνημονεύων ἡμῶν. We should have expected the same construction in the Christian letter P Heid 6.15 (iv/A.D.) (= Selections, p. 126), but the writer substitutes μοι for μουπαρακαλῶ [ο ]ὖν, δέσποτα, ἵνα μνημον [ε ]ύῃς μοι εἰς τὰς ἁγίας σου εὐχάς. Syll 139 (= .3284).8 (iv/B.C.) μνημονεύων (ὁ δῆμος) ἀεὶ τῶν εὐεργετῶν καὶ ζώντων καὶ τετελευτηκότων may recall Hebrews 13:7. The verb is followed by the acc., as in 1 Thessalonians 2:9 al,, in BGU IV.1024v. 20 (IV/A.D.) ἀλλὰ τόκον οὐκ ἔν [ι οὐδ ]ε ̣, τὴν σύνπλησιν ἐκείνων μνημονεύε [ιν : cf. P Strass I. 41.40 (A.D. 250), where, in a dispute regarding an inheritance, one of the parties exclaims—οὐ μνη [μ ]ονεύω δέ, τί ἐν τῇ μεσειτίᾳ ἐγένετο, ";I do not remember what took place in the negotiation,"; and receives the rejoinder—οὐ μέμνησαι οὖν; ";do you not then remember?";

The subst. μνημονεῖον, ";record-office,"; is found in P Oxy X. 1282.22 (A.D. 83) al. : cf. Archiv i. p. 190 f., where it is shown that μνημονεῖον and γραφεῖον are practically identical.
