Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The spelling ἐρευνάω is found ter in the fragmentary P Petr III. 65(b).5, .10, .14 (Ptol.), apparently part of a professional searcher’s report, but ἐραυνάω, which is adopted throughout by WH, is certain from i/A.D. onwards, e.g. P Oxy II. 294.9 f. (A.D. 22) (= Selections, p. 35) ὁ ο [ἶκος. . . . .] Σεκόνδας ἠραύνηται κ [αὶ. . . . .] ὁ ἐμ [ὸς ] οἶκος ἠραύνητ [αι : see Proleg. p. 46, where the spelling of the subst. is also discussed. As illustrating the two forms it is enough to cite here P Tebt I. 38.19 (B.C. 113) ἔρ ]ευναν δὲ τούτου σὺν αὐτοῖς ποιησάμενος, P Oxy I. 67.18 (A.D. 338) ἐπὶ δυσὶ κεφαλαίοις τὴν ἔραυναν ποιούμενον, ";making the inquiry concerning two points."; MGr ἔρευνα. In P Fay 104 (late iii/A.D.) reference is made ter to ἐραυνηταί, ";searchers,"; apparently Customs officials (see the editors’ note ad.14).
