Vocabulary of the Greek NT

δέσμη is differently accented in our authorities. Mayser Gr. pp. 285, 435, cites Herodian (ii/A.D.) in favour of δεσμή , but there are testimonies for δέσμη (see Lobeck Par. p. 396), and the oxytone might be a confusion with δεσμός . Δέσμη = bundle is common in Hellenistic. Thus P Petr II. 25 (c).4 (B.C. 226), ib. 39 (d).12 (iii/B.C.) τούτων χόρτου δεσμῶν φ ̄η ̄, P Tebt I. 122.8 (B.C. 96 or 63) χόρτον δέσμας ς ̄ - , P Oxy IV. 742.4 (B.C. 2) ἀπόστειλόν μ [οι ] πόσας δέσμας παρείληφες , ";send me word how many bundles you have received"; (Edd.), ib..13 τὴν χιλίαν δέσμην , ";the 1000 bundles"; (Edd.), and ib. IX. 1212.4 (ii/A.D.) ἀσπαράγου δέσμ (αι ) ι ̄θ ̄, al. It is curious that the misspelling δύσμη should be found more than once : so the farmer Gemellus in P Fay 119.4, .5 (c. A.D. 100), and an equally literate gentleman in P Ryl II. 135.11 (A.D. 34) quoted under διά . Cf. further under δεσμεύω . A diminutive δεσμίδιον is also found, e.g. P Oxy X. 1288.9, .15 (iv/A.D.). For the idiomatic and possibly genuine δήσατε αὐτὰ δέσμας δέσμας , Matthew 13:30, see Proleg. p. 97. Epiphanius, who gives us this, has also ζυγὴ ζυγή .
