Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For the form ὀγδοιήκοντα see P Petr I. 19.22 ὡς ἐτῶν ὀγδοιήκοντα, and similarly ib. 20 (l).9, both of B.C. 225 : cf. Crönert Mem. Herc, p. 121, Nachmanson p. 46. Mayser (Gr. p. 15 f.) draws attention to the solitary appearance of ὀδώκοντα on a Theban ostracon of i/B.C., Ostr 323.6, and thinks that it may be Ionic. MGr (ὀγδοήντα), ὀγδόντα.
