Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The ordinary use of the verb is for ";payment"; : of. P Giss I. 8.2 (A.D. 119) τη ̣̣[ν συμ ]φωνηθεῖαν (l. -σαν) τιμὴν τῷ Ἀπολλω ̣ν ̣ι ̣ῳ ἀρ ̣[ιθ ]μήσας, P Oxy III. 486.23 (A.D. 131) ἀριθμήσασα τιμὴν αὐτῶν, P Lille I. 3.40 (after B.C. 240) καλῶς ποι (ήσεις) [συ ]ντάξας ἀρ [ι ]θ ̣μ ̣ῆσαι ἡμῖν τὸ γινόμενον ὀψώ [νιον ] τοῦ Λωίο [υ μ ]ηνός, al. In P Leid Cii. 19 (p. 118) (the dream of Ptolemaeus, ii/B.C.) οἴομαι ἀρειθμεῖν με seems to refer to ";counting"; days. ten lines higher the verb means ";pay."; BGU II. 620.6 (ii/A.D.) ἠριθμήθημε [ν has a lacuna following, but has reference apparently to numeration. The subst. ἀρίθμησις occurs in P Ryl II. 99.12 (iii/A.D.) διαγράψω. . ταῖς εἰθισμέναις ἀριθμήσεσιν ";in the customary instalments";(Edd.). It is common in the phrase εἰς ἀρίθμησιν μηνός, as BGU I. 25.6, 41.6 (both ii/iii A.D.), Preisigke 1090.2 (ostracon, A.D. 161). There is a further derivative ἀριθμητικός : Wilcken (Ostr. i. p. 351, cf. Archiv iv. p. 174) makes τὸ ἀ. an impost for the maintenance of the ἀριθμηταί, but GH (P Tebt II. p. 197) regard it rather as a tax on land : cf. BGU I. 236.9, 330.7 (both ii/A.D.). It is MGr, as is ἀριθμός. We may take the opportunity of noting the remarkable parallel to Matthew 10:30, Luke 12:7 in the new fragment of Alcaeus (vii/vi B.C.), P Oxy X. 1233, fr. 8.10 . .]ς παρὰ μοῖραν Δίος οὐδὲ τριχ [ . . (see the note).
