Vocabulary of the Greek NT

";fourth"; (Matthew 14:25, al.) : cf. P Cairo Zen II. 59258.4 (B.C. 252) τοῦ τετάρ [του καὶ ] τριακοστοῦ ἔτους, P Par 49.21 (before B.C. 161) (= UPZ i. p. 309) σησάμου τέταρτον, P Oxy XIV. 1672.14 (A.D. 37–41) τὰ (sc. οἰνάρια) τῆς [τ ]ετάρτης ληνοῦ μόνης, ";the wine of the fourth press only"; (Edd.), ib. X. 1293.25 (A.D. 117–38) ὑστερῶ τέταρτα δ [ ]ο, ";I want two quarters (?)"; (Edd.), ib. VIII. 1102.9 (c. A.D. 146) τὸ τέταρτον τῆς οὐσίας, and PSI V. 450.79 (ii/iii A.D.) τ ̣έταρτον μ ̣έρ [ος ] τῆς αὐτῆς [οἰ ]κίας.

The classical τέτρας to denote the 4th day of the month is seen in such passages as P Ryl II. 197.7 (late ii/A.D.) Ἁθὺρ. . . τετράδι. It is retained in the LXX proper, and is found in the title of the Psalms 93:1-5 [MT Psalms 94:1-23] with reference to the fourth day of the week, as in MGr : see Thackeray Gr. i. p. 189.
