For this proper name, see P Lond 929.88 (ii/iii A.D.) (= III. p. 42), BGU I. 10.12 (A.D. 192). The earliest occurrence is P Petr III. 49.7, where Δημᾶδι follows Φιλίππωι and Τιμοθέωι , but the context has less Biblical suggestion : BGU III. 715ii. 13 (A.D. 101–2) shows Demas in the company of several Jews, as Ἰωσῆς ὁ καὶ Τεύφιλο (ς ), Ἀβράμ [ιος ?,....]ς Ἰσάκεως , Σαμβαθ (άων ) Ἰακούβου : the paper is a γραφὴ σιτολ (όγων ).
