Vocabulary of the Greek NT

In a papyrus of B.C. 217 edited by Th. Reinach in Mél. Nicole, p. 45 1 ff. ( = P Magd 35) we hear of a certain Nicomachus who was νακόρος (Doric form of νεωκόρος) of a Jewish synagogue in an Egyptian village. According to the editor this term, the Greek equivalent of the Hebrew hazzân (generally called ὑπηρέτης), was borrowed from the usage of pagan religion, and is still the current title in Greece or the ";sacristan"; of an orthodox church, as well as of a Jewish synagogue : see also Lumbroso in Archiv iv. p. 317, and cf. Herodas iv. 41, where the νεωκόρος (Lat. aedituus) is sent for to open the temple of Asklepios in Cos. Another early ex. of the word denoting a humble temple-functionary is Priene 231 (iv/B.C.) Μεγάβυζος ] Μεγαβύζου νεωκόρος τῆς Ἀρτέμιδος τῆς ἐν Ἐφέσωι, which is interesting as pointing forward to the proud application of the term to Ephesus itself as the ";warden"; of the temple of Artemis, as in Acts 19:35, see e.g. OGIS 481.1 (A.D. 102–6) Ἀρτέμιδι Ἐφεσίᾳ. . . καὶ τῶι νεωκόρωι Ἐφεσίων δήμωι, with Dittenherger’s note. The earliest trace of Ephesus as νεωκόρος is said to be on a coin of A.D. 65 : see Rouffiac, p. 65 n. .4. Later the city came to be known as δίς, τρὶς νεωκόρος : see Ramsay, art. ";Ephesus,"; in Hastings’ DB i. p. 722. Instances of the term applied to individuals are P Oxy I. 100.2 (A.D. 133) Μᾶρκος Ἀντώνιος Δεῖος. . . νεωκόρος τοῦ μεγάλου Σαράπιδος, BGU I. 73.1 (A.D. 135) Κλαύδιος Φιλόξενος νεωκόρος τοῦ μεγάλου Σαράπι [δ ]ος, P Tebt II. 286.13 (A.D. 121–138), 317.1 (A.D. 174–5), al. : cf. also Syll 607 ( = .3 898 .28 (iii/A.D.) ἐβ (όησεν) ὁ δ (ῆμοςπολλοῖς ἔτεσι [τοὺς ] νεωκόρους. On the form of the word see Thumb Hellen. p. 78, and cf. Otto Priester i. p. 113, Crönert Mem. Herc. p. 165. The subst. νεωκορία is found in BGU I. 14 ii. 11 (A.D. 255), Vett. Val. p. 4.25, and ναοφύλαξ in BGU II. 362 ii. 10 (A.D. 215) ( = p. 4). Boisacq (p. 495) reverts to the traditional derivation from κορέω, ";sweep,"; comparing the Ion. ζακόρος and the Hom. σηκοκόρος.
