For this word = ";possessor,"; ";owner,"; as in Acts 4:34, cf. P Oxy II. 237viii. 31 (A.D. 186) κελεύω οὖν πάντας τοὺς κτήτορας ἐντὸς μηνῶν ἓξ ἀπογράψασθαι τὴν ἰδίαν κτῆσιν εἰς τὴν τῶν ἐνκτήσεων βιβλιοθήκην, ";I command all owners to register their property at the property record-office within six months"; (Edd.), P Tebt II. 378.24 (a lease of land—A.D. 265) τ [ῶν δ ]ημοσίων πάντων ὄντων πρὸς ὑμ [ᾶς τοὺ ]ς κτήτορας, ";all the State dues being paid by you the landlords"; (Edd.). See also Archiv v. p. 374 f. For the later sense of ";founder"; Preuschen (HZNT ad Ac l.c.) refers to Krumbacher Indogerm. Forsch. xxv. p. 393 ff. The adj. κτητορικός occurs in the fragmentary P Giss I. 124.7 (vi/A.D.).
