For this common word we may quote P Amh II. 33 (c. B.C. 157), where reference is made to the severe penalties incurred by advocates who had assisted persons charged with defrauding the Treasury. No longer were they allowed to practise, and had to pay to the Crown (εἰς τὸ βασιλικόν) ";twice the sum (of the damage) increased by one tenth";—διπλοῦν τὸ ἐπιδέκατον. Other exx. are P Tebt I. 11.16 (B.C. 119) τὰ προκείμενα δι ̣π ̣λᾶ, ";twice the aforesaid amount,"; P Oxy VIII. 1124.15 (A.D. 26) ἐκφόρ [ιο ]ν διπλοῦν, ";double the rent,"; P Fay 110.30 (A.D. 94) τὰς δὲ ὠλένας τοῦ ἐλαιουργίου δ [ι ]πλᾶς ποίησον, ";make the hinges (?) of the oil-press double"; (Edd.), P Oxy IV. 741.3 (ii/A.D.) σφυρὶς διπλῆ καρύων α ̄, ";1 double basket of nuts"; (Edd.), P Hamb I. 21.10 (A.D. 314–5) ἐκτίσιν σοι τοῦ ὑπερπεσόντος χρόνου τὴν ἐπὶ του ̣̑ τότε καιροῦ ἐσομένην τιμὴν διπλῆν ὡς ἕσταται, etc. In Ostr 1291.3 (A.D. 148) ἔσχ (ομεν) ὑπ (ὲρ) διπλῶν so much, διπλοῦν seems to be a tax. Wilcken (Archiv i. p. 126) refers to P Oxy I. 141 of date A.D. 503 as the earliest ex. of διπλοῦν as a wine measure known to him. In P Petr II. 13(17).4 (B.C. 258–3) we find a form δίπλειον = δίπλεον —καὶ δίπλειον εἰληφέναι τοῦ διαγεγραμμένου ὀψωνίου ἐν τῶι κ ̄θ ̄ (ἔτει), ";and that I received double the allowance of provision money in the 29th year"; (Ed.). In BGU I. 213.4 (A.D. 112) διπλώματος ὄνων may = a ";licence"; to own donkeys : cf. P Tebt II. 360.3 (A.D. 146) διπ (λώματος ?) λαχα (νοπώλου ?) with the editors’ note.
