Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The indeterminate use of δέκα to denote simply a period of time, which is found in Biblical Greek (Genesis 24:55, Numbers 11:19, Daniel 1:14, Revelation 2:10), may be illustrated from P Petr III. 36 verso.5 where a prisoner complains that he has been harshly treated in prison—λιμῶι παραπολλύμενος μῆνές εἰσιν δέκα , ";perishing from hunger for the last ten months";; and from a more literary source in the Mimes of Herodas I. 24—δέκ᾽ εἰσὶ μῆνες , during which a husband, who has gone on a journey to Egypt, does not write to his wife. See further Lumbroso in Archiv iv. p. 319 f., where some parallels are quoted from literary Κοινή . Of course there is no proof that the above is not to be taken literally.
