Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The ordinary limitation of this word to ";a worker in wood,"; ";a carpenter,"; as in Matthew 13:55, Mark 6:3, is supported by P Fay 110.28 (A.D. 94) τὰς θύρας ἐπιστησάτωσαν οἱ τέκτονες, ";let the carpenters put up the doors"; (Edd.), P Flor II. 152.9 (letter regarding the conveyance of wood— A.D. 268) τῷ τέκτονι τὴν συνήθη δ [α ]πάνην, cf. ib. 158.1 (iii/A.D.), and P Oxy I. 53.2 (A.D. 316), a report παρὰ τοῦ κοινοῦ τῶν τεκτόνων, from the guild of carpenters at Oxyrhynchus regarding a persea tree they had been commissioned to examine.

Other exx. of the word are P Fay 122.19 (c. A.D. 100) ἀπαναγκάσεις Σισόιν τὸν τ [έκ ]τ ̣ο ̣να ̣ ἀποτῖσαι, ";make Sisois the carpenter pay up"; (Edd.), Ostr 1597 (ii/A.D.) δὸς τοῖς τέκτοσι ζεύγη ἄρτων δέκα ἕν, P Oxy I. 121.25 (iii/A.D.) τοὺς τέκτονες (= ας) μὴ ἀφῇς ὅλως ἀργῆσε (= σαι), ";don’t allow the carpenters to be wholly idle"; (Edd.), PSI VII. 809.4 (iv/A.D.) Φοιβάμμονι τέκτονι ἐργ (αζομένῳ) εἰς. . ., and ib. 774.10 (v/A.D.) τέκτων εἴτε κεραμεύς. In Herodas IV. 22 the ";craftsman"; (τέκτων) is a sculptor. Cf. s.v. ἀρχιτέκτων.

For the adj. see P Oxy IV. 729.12 (A.D. 137), P Flor I. 16.24 (A.D. 239) τεκτονικῶν μισθῶν.
