μακρός is used of time in P Giss I. 41ii. 2 (beg. of Hadrian’s reign) ὑπὸ τ ̣ ̣ς ̣ μακρᾶς ἀποδημίας τὰ ἡμέτε [ρα ] πα [ντ ]α ̣πασιν ἀμεληθέντα τυγχ [άνει ";owing to our long absence from home our affairs came to be altogether neglected"; : cf. Preisigke 3925.6 (B.C. 149–8 or 137–6) μακ [ρὸν ἂν εἴη ] διασαφῆσαι, and P Strass I. 22.3 (iii/A.D.) μακρᾶς νομῆς πα ̣ρ ̣αγραφη ̣, ";longae possessions (longi temporis) praescriptio."; In a tract on medical training, Berl. Klass. Texte iii. p. 22 ff. Col. 2, 7 ff., it is laid down : δεῖ. . . τοὺς νέους ἐξ ἀρχῆς συνασκεῖν τοῖς ἀνα [γ ]καιοτέροις π [ρ ]άγμασιν τοῦ βίου βραχέος ὄντ [ο ]ς καὶ τῆς τέχνης μακρῆς, ὥς φησιν ὁ Ἱπποκράτης.
