Vocabulary of the Greek NT

In a petition regarding the division of a piece of land, P Magd 29.10 (B.C. 218), the appellant asks that the defendant should be forced to give him a proper entrance and exit (εἴσοδον καὶ ἔξοδον) instead of throwing him into a hidden corner—ε ̣ι ̣̔̓ς ̣ἐσώτερόν με ἀπερρίφθαι. Another petition, P Lond 106.13 and .23 (B.C. 261 or 223) (= I. p. 61), gives us both ἐκρίπτω and ἀπορρίπτωτά τε σκεύη μου ἐξέρριψεν εἰς τὴν ὁδὸν. . ., ἐγὼ δὲ τὰ σκεύη τὰ ἀποριφέντα μου εἰς τὴν ὁδὸν εἰσήνεγκα. See also Moulton in CR xx. p. 216, where the fairly accessible warrant of Acts 27:43 is produced against two classical scholars who strained at ἀπορρίπτειν intrans. in Charito iii. 5.6.
