Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For ὅμοιος as denoting the same rank or station cf. P Oxy I. 124.2 (iii/A.D.) Ἄδραστος. . . γήμας ἐκ τῶν ὁμοίων ἔσχεν θυγατέρας δύο, ";Adrastus married one of his own rank and had two daughters"; (Edd.), and the apophthegm in PSI I. 120.33 (iv/A.D. ?) γάμει ἐκ τῶν ὁμοίων · οἱ μὲν γὰρ ἐκ τῶν κρεισσόνων γαμοῦντες δεσπότας κοὐκ οἰκείους κτῶνται. In P Ryl II. 105.20 (A.D. 136) ὡς ἐπὶ τῶν ὁμοίω (ν) = ";as in similar cases."; The adj. is used with ἴσος in Syll 162 (=.3 312).27 (end iv/B.C.) ἐπ᾽ ἴσηι καὶ ὁμοίηι, ";upon equal and similar terms,"; and for a weakened sense see P Tebt II. 300.13 (A.D. 151) διὼ ἐπιδίδομι ὥπως περιερεθῇ (l. διὸ ἐπιδίδωμι ὅπως περιαιρεθῇ) [τ ]οῦτο τὸ ὄνομα ταγῆναι ἐν τῇ τῶν ὁμο [ίων ] τάξι, ";wherefore I present this notice, that this name may be struck off and may be inscribed in the list of such persons"; (viz. the dead). On the flexion of the adj. see Moulton Gr. ii. p. 157. Hort regards ὅμοιον in Revelation 1:13 as virtually an adverb like οἷον.
