Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The invariable Biblical use of μόσχος in the sense of ";calf"; is seen in such passages as P Ryl II. 229.20 (letter regarding farm stock—A.D. 38) ἐπιμελοῦ δὲ καὶ τοῦ μόσχου, ";do you also take care of the calf,"; P Fay 121.18 (c. A.D.100) καὶ τὸ δ ̣[έρ ]μ ̣α τοῦ μόσχου οὗ ἐθ ̣υ ̣[σ ]αμεν αἴτησον πα ̣[ρὰ τοῦ ] κυρτοῦ βυρσέως, ";ask the hunch-backed tanner for the hide of the calf that we sacrificed"; (Edd.), and P Oxy IX. 1211.4 (list of objects for a sacrifice ";to the most sacred Nile";—ii/A.D.) μόσχος α ̄. In BGU V. 1.183 (c. A.D.150) it is laid down—ἀσφρ ̣α [γ ]ι ̣σ ̣τους μόσχους ου ̣̓κ ̣ ἐξὸν θύειν, and consequently in P Lond 472.4 (A.D. 188) (= II. p, 22) we have a certificate of payment of a tax in respect of a calf to be sacrificed—διέγραψε τ ̣ε ̣λ ̣ο ̣ς ̣ μόσχου θυομένου, and in P Grenf II. 64.3 (ii/iii A.D.) a certificate issued by ";a sealer of sacred calves"; that he had examined a sacrificial calf and found it without blemish—ἱαιρομοσχοσφραγιστὴς (l. ἱερο –) ἐπεθεώρησα μ [ ]σχ [ο ]ν θυόμενον (cf. BG U I. 250 = Chrest. I, 87—after A.D. 130). The dim. μοσχάριον occurs in PSI VI. 600 (iii/B.C.), which also shows μοσχοτρόφος (cf. P Gurob 22.44—iii/B.C.). For μοσχομάγειρος, ";a calf-butcher,"; see P Oxy XIV. 1764.6 (iii/A.D.), where the editors in their note compare BGU I. 3.11 (A.D. 605) χοιρομαγείρῳ, and ἰσικιομάγειρος in a Rainer papyrus ap. Wessely Wien Stud. 1902. 129 (A.D. 596)
