This NT ἅπ. εἰρ. (Acts 1:20 from Psalms 68:26 [MT Psalms 69:26]) may be illustrated from a property-return, P Oxy II. 248.28 (A.D. 80), where mention is made of δίμοιρον μέρος τετάρτου μέρου [ς ] κοινωνικῆς ἐπαύλεως συνπεπ [τω ]κυίας, ";a common homestead that is in a state of ruin"; : cf. P Ryl II. 177.10 (A.D. 246) λιβὸς ἔπαυλ [ις Φοι ]βάμμωνος Τρύφωνος, ";on the west the homestead of Phoebammon son of Tryphon,"; and P Hamb I. 23.18 (A.D. 569) καὶ οἰκίᾳ καὶ ἐπαύλιδι (contrast ἐπαύλεως supra), with the editor's note, where other instances are collected. From the inscrr. we may add Syll 510.13, .68 (ii/B.C.), and for the diminutive OGlS 765.18 (iii/B,C.) τά τε ἐ ]παύλια ἐνέπ [ρη ]σαν.
