Vocabulary of the Greek NT

To Deissmann’s example (BS, p. 248) CPR 115.6 (ii/A.D.) γείτο ]νες ἐκ τεσσάρων ἀνέμων, where the phrase clearly refers to the four cardinal points as in Zechariah 11:6, Matthew 24:31, Mark 13:27, we may add P Flor I. 50.104 (A.D. 268) ἐκ τῶν τεσσάρων ἀνέμων. The same use of ἄνεμος is implied in P Flor I. 20.18 (A.D. 127) ἐξ οὗ ἐὰν ὁ Ὧρος αἱρῆται ̣ ἀνέμου : Vitelli compares Catullus xxvi, where the poet says his bungalow is ";exposed"; (opposita) not to S. or W. wind, N. or E., but to a mortgage of £140. In P Oxy I. 100.10 (A.D. 133) a declaration regarding the sale of land, we find ὧν ἡ τοποθεσία καὶ τὸ κατ᾽ ἄνεμον διὰ τῆς καταγραφῆς δεδήλωται, where the editors understand by τὸ κατ᾽ ἄνεμον the boundaries on the four sides. For the ordinary sense we need quote nothing, unless we may note the combination in Wünsch AF 4.6 (p. 15—iii/A.D.) τὸν θεὸν τῶν ἀνέμων καὶ πνευμάτων Λαιλαμ. (It is MGr.)
