Vocabulary of the Greek NT

In a return of hieroglyphic inscribers, P Oxy VII. 1029.25 (A.D. 107), the ἱερόγλυφοι declare on oath that the list is exhaustive, and that there were no apprentices or strangers versed in their art—ὀμνύομεν. . . μηδὲ ἔχει [ν ] μαθητὰς ἢ ἐπιξένους χρωωμένους (l. χρωμ -) τῇ τέχνῃ εἰς τὴν ἐνεστῶσαν ἡμέραν. The word is probably (to be read in BGU I. 328 i. 24 (ii/A.D.). The distinction between μάθημα and μάθησις is well seen in PSI I. 94.8 f. (ii/A.D.) προσεδρεύει ἰς τὰ μαθήματα · ζηλοῖ γὰρ τὴν μάθησιν, ";he is regular in attendance at his studies, for he is eager in acquiring knowledge"; : cf. also P Oxy X. 1296.6 (iii/A.D.) ἀμερίμνη οὖν, πάτερ, χάριν τῶν μαθημάτων ἡμῶν, ";do not be anxious, father, about my studies"; (Edd.), ib. IV. 724.8 (A.D. 155) πρὸς μάθησιν σημείων —contract of apprenticeship to a shorthand-writer, and from the inscrr. IMAe VII. 449.7 πᾶσαν μάθησιν ὑμνοποιὸν ἐνδιδούς. MGr μαθητής, plur. μαθητές or μαθητάδες.
