The verb is a technical term of agriculture in P Tebt I. 105.23 (B.C. 103), to rest land by sowing light crops upon it. Cf P Lond 314.15 f. (A.D. 149) (= II. p. 189 f.), σπείρων. . . ἀρ [ούρ ]ας δύο ἀπὸ νότου ἀναπαύμεσι γέ [νε ]σ ̣ι, P Amh II. 91.16 (A.D. 159) γένεσ ̣ι ἀναπαύματος, ";with light crops"; (Edd.), and the full discussion by Wilcken Archiv i. p. 157 f. Land thus rested was ἐν ἀναπαύματι, P Tebt I. 72.389 (B.C. 114–3), P Lond 1223.8 (A.D. 121) (= III. p. 139), or could be called ἀνάπαυμα itself, as P Fay 112.4 (A.D. 99) [τὰ ] ἀναπαύματα ὑπόσχεισον, ";hoe the fallows"; (Edd.). A wider use may be seen in P Oxy VIII. 1121.12 (A.D. 295), with the ";temporary"; connotation gone : ταύτης πρὸ ὀλίγων τούτων ἡμερῶν τὸν βίον ἀναπαυσαμένης ἀδιαθέτου, ";a few days ago she died intestate"; (Edd.) So in Preisigke 1205, upon a mummy, ἐν Ἀλεξανδρείᾳ ἀναπαυσάμενος, and ib. 609. 611, two ";R.I.P."; Christian gravestones—κ (ύρι)ε, ἀνάπα [υ ]σον [? τὴν ψυχὴν τοῦ δούλου σου, or the like], followed by date of death, and Ἀθ (α)νασία, ἀναπα ̣[ύ ]ου. The date of these instances saves us from the necessity of reconsidering Lightfoot’s definition for NT times.
