Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The phrase of Matthew 14:3 (LXX al.) is found nearly in P Eleph 12 (B.C. 223–2) γεγράφαμεν. . . τῶι φυλακίτηι. . . ἀποθέσθαι αὐτοὺς εἰς τὴν φυλακήν. The label on a mummy, Preisigke 3553, has ἀποτεθ (ειμένη) following ἔνδον ἐστίν, ";is enclosed within."; In P Flor II. 125.2 (A.D. 254) τα᾽ ἀποτεθέντα γένη ἐν Φιλαγρίδι is ";the goods that were stored at P."; So P Ryl II. 125.14 (A.D. 28–9) τὰ ὑπὸ τῆς μητρός μου ἀποτεθειμένα ἐν πυξιδίῳ ἔτι ἀπὸ τοῦ ι ̄ς ̄ [ἔτους) Καίσαρος, ";certain articles deposited in a little box by my mother as far back as in the 16th year of Augustus"; (Edd.). A weakening of the sense of the verb is seen in the fourth century P Oxy I. 120.13 f. παραμένοντά μοι ἄχρις ἂν γνῶ πῶς τὰ κατ᾽ αἰμαὶ ἀποτίθαιται, ";to stay with me until I know the position of my affairs"; (Edd.).
