Vocabulary of the Greek NT

Syll 324.20 (i/B.C.) τῆς πόλεως ἀποβεβλημένη [ς ] ἀγαθὸν [πολείτην. The words τὰ ἀποβάλλοντα are used as a designation for certain δημόσια ἐδάφη in P Flor I. 2O.15 (A.D. 127) (= Chrest. I. p. 422), but the reason for the designation is by no means clear : see the note by Vitelli, who favours a sense = ";fruitful,"; and compares the somewhat similar usage in P Gen I. 6.10 (ii/A.D.) μήτε ἐκ τ [οῦ ] κεφαλαίου τι αὐτοὺς [ ]ποβεβληκέναι. P Ryl I. 28.42 (iv/ A.D.) tells us that one kind of ";quivering"; means that πολλὰ ἀποβάλλει ὁ τοιοῦτος, and in .130 one whose left shin quivers ἀποβαλεῖν πρόσωπον ὑποτακτικόν, ";will lose a subordinate person."; PSI 32.17 (A.D. 208) μὴ ἐξεῖναι δὲ ἡμεῖν ἀποβαλέσθαι σε τῆ [ς μι ]σθώσεως.
