Vocabulary of the Greek NT

P Par 47.19 f. (c. B.C. 153) (= Selections, p. 23) ὁ στρατηγὸς ἀναβαίν᾽ αὔριον εἰς τὸ Σαραπιῆν , P Tebt I. 37.23 ff. (B.C. 73) ἐὰν δὲ ἀμελήσῃς ἀναγκασθήσομαι ἐγ ̣ὼ ἐ [λθεῖ ]ν ̣ αὔριο [ν ], and BGU I. 38.21 (i/A.D.) where a boy writes to his father that he goes daily to a certain seller of barley-beer (ζυθόπωλις ) who daily says σήμερον α ̣ὔρ [ε ]ιν (-(ε )ιν for -ιον , as often), ";to-day, to-morrow (you shall get it),"; but never gives it. The full phrase, which is contracted in Matthew 6:34, Acts 4:3, is seen in BGU I. 286.10 (A.D. 306) ἀπὸ τῆς αὔριον ἡμέρας , and Wünsch AF 3.19 (Imperial) ἐν τῇ αὔριν ἡμέρᾳ . It appears without ἡμέρα in P Flor II. 118.5 (A.D. 254) μετὰ τὴν α ., P Tebt II. 417.7 and 419.2 (iii/A.D.) ἐν τῇ α ., BGU II. 511i. 18 (c. A.D. 200) εἰς αὔ ]ριον (or εἰς τὴν α .), etc. Mayser Gr. p. 200, quotes P Tebt I. 119.17 (B.C. 105–1) τὸ ἐφαύρι [ο ]ν for ἐφ᾽ αὕριον as proof of the living character of the strong aspirate : here the analogy of ἐφ᾽ ἡμέραν is an obvious influence. Note also the formula of invitation to dinner, as P Oxy III. 524.3 α ̣[ὔριον ], ἥτις ἐστὶν λ ̄, ib. I. 110.3 (also ii/A.D.) αὔριον ἥτις ἐστὶν ι ̄ε ̄, ib. III.3 (iii/A.D.) αὔριον , ἥτις ἐστὶν πέμπτη : so ib. VII. 1025.16 (late iii/A.D.), where an actor and a Homeric reciter are engaged to come for a festival ";on the birthday of Cronus the most great god,"; τῶν θεωριῶν ἅμ ̣᾽ α ̣υ ̣͗[ρ ]ιον ἥτις ἐστὶν ι ̄ ἀγ ̣ο ̣μ ̣[έν ]ων . It is MGr.
