Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For the impersonal λυσιτελεῖ, as in Luke 17:2 (cf. Tobit 3:6), cf. P Hamb I. 27.17 (B.C. 250) ὥστε λυσιτελεῖ μισθώσασθαι ἢ χορτάσματα ζητεῖν.

The adj. is common—P Petr II. 13(6).7 (B.C. 258–3) ὅτι εἴη λυσιτελὴς ἡ ἐργολαβία (contract for work), ib. III. 41 verso.6 λυσιτελέστερον οὗν φαίνεται, P Par 62iv. 8 (c. B.C. 170) ἐὰν μὴ ἐπί τινων ἄλλο τι λυσιτελέστερον συγχωρηθῇ ἐπὶ τῆς πράσεως.
