Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The earliest citation we can give for this NT ἅπ. εἰρ. (Mark 7:32), except perhaps LXX Isaiah 35:6, is from a ii/A.D. copy of a probably Ptolemaic astrological calendar, P Oxy III. 465.228 ο ]ὗτος ὁ θεὸς ποιεῖ γῆρας πολὺ. . . . οὗτος μὴ ἔχοντα ὀφθαλμούς, οὗτος ὅμοια κτήνι, οὗτος μογιλάλα, οὗτος κωφά, οὗτος νωδά, ";this deity causes long old age, and persons with no eyes and like a beast and dumb and deaf and toothless"; (Edd.) : cf. Vett. Val. p. 73.12 γίνονται δὲ καὶ μογιλάλοι ἢ καὶ ταῖς ἀκοαῖς παραποδιζόμενοι. With the variant μογγιλάλος in MK l.c. (WLN Δ 28 33 al.) cf. the word μογγός in P Lond 653.16 (early iv/A.D.) (= III. p. 241) οὐκ εἰμὶ μογγός, ";I am not hoarse,"; and see Moulton, Gr. ii. p. 106.
