Commenting on P Petr I. 12.10 cited s.v. ἐμαυτοῦ ad init., Mahaffy draws attention to the substitution of cases of ἐμαυτοῦ for ἐμός in the Ptolemaic papyri. The only exception he notes is P Petr I. 14.13 (B.C. 237) (= III. p. 12) τ ]ῆι ἐμῆ [ι γ ]υναικί. A later example (A.D. 192) is found on an ostracon published in LAE, p. 186 δὸς τῆ ἐμῆ παιδίσκη, where Deissmann remarks that ἐμῆ is unemphatic, as, for example, in Romans 10:1 : cf. also P Oxy VIII. 1159.15 (late iii/A.D.) περὶ δὲ καὶ τῶν ἐμῶν συνέργων, ";with regard to my tools."; PSI III. 223.6 (A.D. 580) ὁλόγραφον χειρὶ ἐμῇ shows us the Pauline phrase (1 Corinthians 16:21 al.). In ib. 213.5 (iii/A.D.) we have ἐμὰ γάρ ἐστιν, while the masculine = ";the members of my family"; is found in P Par 70.16 (Ptol.) τὸ σύμβολον τῶν ἐμῶν, P Oxy I. 115.7 (ii/A.D.) πάντες οἱ ἐμοί : cf. Preisigke 1768 (Thebes) τ ]ὸ π ̣ρο <σ >κύν ̣η [μα ] τῶν [ἐ ]μ [ῶν ] πάντων. The use of ἐμός is very characteristic of the Johannine writings (cf. Proleg. p. 40 n. .2), and Thumb (ThLZ, 1903, p. 421) regards this as a sign of their connexion with Asia Minor, in view of the fact that ἐμός survives in modern Pontic—Cappadocian Greek, as against μου elsewhere : but see Proleg. p. 211.
