OGIS 56.46 (B.C. 238) ὅπως ἅπαντες εἰδῶσιν διότι τὸ ἐνλεῖπον πρότερον (as to the calendar) διωρθῶσθαι καὶ ἀναπεπληρῶσθαι συμβέβηκεν διὰ τῶν Εὐεργετῶν θεῶν : the first word describes correction, the second intercalation. On P Par 62v. 3 (ii/B.C.) τοῖς δ᾽ ἀναπληρώσουσιν τὰς ὠν ̣ὰς δοθήσεται ὀψώνια, ἐάνπερ ἐκπληρώσουσιν κτλ., ";those who complete the contracts,"; see Wilcken Ostr. i. p. 532f., who explains the ὀψώνια (against Grenfell) as a commission of 10%. The noun occurs in P Lond 890.4 (B.C. 6) (=III. p. 168) εἰς ̣ α ̣̓ν ̣α ̣π ̣λήρωσιν τιμῆς, and the verb in Syll 510.62 (ii/B.C.) τὸ γενόμενον διάπτωμα ἀναπληρούτωσαν : cf. P Petr III. 54 (a) (3).4 (Philadelphus) ἀναπληρούτωσα [ν ], but with a hiatus both before and after. In P Lille I. 8.14 (iii/B.C.) a petitioner demands the restoration of certain cattle that had been taken from him, that he may ";make up"; his rent—ὅ ]πως δύνωμαι ἀναπληροῦν τὰ ἐ ̣[κ ]φόρια τῆς γῆς. P Giss I. 48.30 (A.D. 203) ἵν᾽ εἰδῆτε καὶ ἕκαστος τὰ ἵδια μέρη ἀναπληρώσει seems from the context to have the same meaning (";pay";), though a more general sense is also possible. The same formula is found in Chrest. I. 52.8 (A.D. 194). The meaning ";fulfil"; may be seen in P Oxy VIII. 1121.11 (A.D. 295) οὐκ ἐπαυσάμην τὰ πρέποντα γείνεσθαι ύπὸ τέκνων γονεῦσι ἀναπληροῦσα.
