For σπέρμα in the singular in Galatians 3:16, see Milligan Documents, p. 105; and for the subst. σπερματισμός see P Lond 604.3 (A.D. 47) (= III. p. 71). We may note the proverb Kaibel 1038.8 εῖς ] πέλαγος σπέρμα βα [λεῖν, of vain and empty toil, and Musonius p. 8.1 πρὸς καλοκἀγαθίαν καὶ σπέρμα ἀρετῆς. On the use of ἄτεκνος in Luke 20:29 as compared with οὐκ ἀφῆκεν σπέρμα in the parallel Mark 12:20 (cf. Matthew 22:25), see H. Pernot La Langue des Évangiles (Paris, 1927), p. 17.
