Vocabulary of the Greek NT

Like the verb, this non-classical subst. is found in horoscopes, e.g. P Lond 98 recto.60 (i/ii A.D.) (= 1. p. 130) ὁ φυ [σικὸς ο ]ἰκ [οδεσπότης ] τῆς γενέσεως Ἀφροδείτης καὶ Ἑρμοῦς, similarly ib. 110 (A.D. 138) (= I. p. 132), and PSI III. 158.80 (iii/A.D.?) σκοπ ̣ε ̣ῖν δὲ ἐπὶ παντὸς εἴδους τοὺς οἰκοδεσπότας τῶν φώτων. The word in the sense of ";house-steward"; (cf. Matthew 10:25 al.) occurs in the late P Meyer 24.2 (vi/A.D.), where the writer states that he is prevented from receiving the visit of a high dignitary—ὑπὸ κηδίας τοῦ οἰκοδεσπότου, ";owing to the death of the house-steward."; Hatch (JBL xxvii. p. 142) cites the Isaurian inscr. υἱοὺς τοὺς οἰκοδεσπ [ότα ]ς from PAS iii. p. 150. Epictetus applies the term to God, iii. 22. 4 ἔστι γάρ τις καὶ ἐνθάδ᾽ οἰκοδεσπότης ἕκαστα [ ] διατάσσων, ";for here too is a master of the house who orders everything"; (Sharp, P. 25).
