Vocabulary of the Greek NT

P Magd 4.5 (iii/B.C.) ἀπέκτειναν, P Par 23.6 (B.C. 165) ἀποκτῖναι, ib. II verso .2 (B.C. 157) ἀποκτέναι (see Mayser, p. 70). The verb only occurs eleven times in Syll index. In later papyri we can quote P Oxy VI. 903.6 (iv/A.D.) ἀποκτίνας αὐτοὺς τῶν π [λ ]ηγῶν ";half killed them with blows"; (Edd.), PSI 27.21 (v/A.D., Acts of a martyr), P Lips I. 40iii. 2 (law report, iv/v A.D.) ἠθέλησεν αὐτὸν ἀποκρῖναι (sic), P Gen I. 49.20 (iv/A.D.) [π ]ληγες ἀπέ [κτ ]εινάν με —as in P Oxy VI. 903, the complainant was obviously not ";kilt entoirely";! P Lond 240.10 (A.D. 346) (= II. p. 278) ἀπέκτινέν μέ τε εἰ μή γ᾽ ἐς φυγὴν ἐχρησάμην, BGU IV. 1024iii. 30 (iv/v A.D.) ξίφι ἀπέκ [τεινε. For five centuries then we have no trace of this supposed common verb from popular sources : yet in the middle of this period it abounds in the NT texts, developing a whole series of curious forms in the present stem. Meanwhile it was flourishing in literature, to which perhaps it owes its return to the popular speech in the Byzantine age. A more extensive search in the ruder inscriptions outside Egypt is desirable, as it might prove that the word was in popular use in other countries. Indeed the NT itself is evidence of this.
