Vocabulary of the Greek NT

εἴκοσι, and not εἴκοσιν, is the regular form in the papyri even before a vowel, as in the best MSS. of Acts 1:15, e.g. BGU II. 644.19 (A.D. 69) εἴκοσι ἤ, ib. I. 267.11 (A.D. 199) εἴκοσι ἀριθμῷ, P Grenf II. 59.11 (A.D. 189) εἴκοσι ἀπό. Crönert Mem.Herc. p. 141 n..2 notes only one exception, P Grenf II. 75.7 (A.D. 305) τάλαντα εἴκοσιν, ἃ πλήρωσέν (l. ἐπλήρωσέν) μοι : see also Mayser Gr. p. 239.

In Preisigke 1931 (ostracon—A.D. 69) the word is written ἴκοσι : so 1932. For ἡ εἰκοστή as a tax of 5 per cent. on the rent of an οἰκόπεδον cf. P Petr II. 11 (2).4 (mid. iii/B.C.) (= III. p. 112) ἀπογέγραμμαι δὲ ἐπὶ τελώνιον τὸ οἰκόπεδον φέρον ἐν [οίκιο ]ν (δραχμῶν) ι ̄ζ ̄ (ἡμισείας), ἵνα ἐκ τοσούτου φέρωμεν τὴν εἰκοστήν : see further Wilcken Ostr i. p. 363 f., and for a similar succession duty see Hunt in P Oxy VIII. p. 192.
