P. 563) κόμισαι δὲ καὶ τὸν ἔριφον.παρὰ Ἀριστίωνος καὶ πέμψον ἡμῖν, ";get the kid also from Aristion and send it to me,"; P Par 63i. 17 (B.C. 164) (= P Petr III. p. 18) ἐν τῶι πεμφθέντι σοι παρ᾽ ἡμῶν ὑπομνήματι, ";in the minute sent to you by us,"; P Tebt I. 22.6 (B.C. 112) πεπομφότες τῆι κ ̄α ̄ ἐπὶ τὰ σπέρματα, ";having sent on the 21st for the seed,"; ib. II. 414.9 (ii/A.D.) ἰ μὴ ὅτι ἠσθένηκα, πάλαι πεπόνφην σοι, ";had it not been for the fact that I was ill, I would have sent them to you long ago"; (Edd.), and P Iand 10.3 f (iii/A.D.) ἐπένσαμέν σοι ταύτην τὴν ἐπ ]ιστολὴν διὰ τῶν φυλάκων [ἐκπορευομένων, ἐπειδὴ δι᾽ ἄλλ ̣]ου οὐ δυνάμεθα πένσαι σοι, with the editor’s note, where there are also collected a number of instances of the dropping of the 2d π, e.g. P Oxy III. 528.11 (ii/A.D.) ἔπεμσας, .19 ἔπεμσε, and .24 ἔπεμσα. See also Deissmann’s note ad P Meyer 20.12. MGr aor. ἔπεψα.

In the letter of Psenosiris, P Grenf II. 73.10 (late iii/A.D.) ( = Selections, p. 118), the ";colourless"; πέμπω is used to denote banishment into the Oasis–τὴν Πολιτικὴν τὴν πεμφθεῖσαν εἰς Ὄασιν ὑπὸ τῆς ἡγεμονίας. See also Preisigke 3815 where the label attached to a body forwarded for mummification runs—Βησοῦς πεμπομένη εἰς Πανῶ (ν) καὶ παραδιδομέονην αηταφιαστῇ τῶο Πανιοσᾶτι (l. παραδιδομένη ἐνταφιαστῇ τῷ Πανισᾶτι).
