For this adj. in its ordinary sense of ";young,"; cf. P Tebt II, 326.6 (c. A.D. 266) where a woman notifies the Prefect that her husband had died intestate—τὴν ἐξ ἀμφοῖν γενομένην θυγατέρα κομιδῆ νηπίαν καταλιπὼν ᾗ ὄνομά ἐστι Παυλῖνα, ";leaving our daughter, called Paulina, quite young"; (Edd.), P Ryl II. 114.31 (c. A.D. 280) a woman’s petition for assistance to enable her to recover her property and—μετὰ νηπίων τέκνων ἐν τῇ ἰδίᾳ συν [μένειν, ";to live with my young children in my own home"; (Edd.), and P Flor I. 36.5 (iv/A.D.) ἅ ]μα ἐκ νηπίας ἡλικίας. An earlier ex. of the word is P Leid Bi. 22 (B.C. 164) (= I. p. 9) χρείας ἔτι νηπίας οὔσας, unfortunately after a lacuna. See also Kaibel 314.1 ff. (iii/A.D.), a sepulchral epitaph to a child, who had lived only four years, five months, and twenty days—
Νήπιός εἰμι τυχὼν τύμβου τοῦδ᾽, ὦ παροδεῖτα ·
ὅσσ᾽ ἔπαθον δ᾽ ἐν βαιῷ τέρματί μου βιοτῆς,
ἐνκύρσας λαϊνέᾳ στήλλῃ τάχα καὶ σὺ δακρύσεις.
