Vocabulary of the Greek NT

πρόβατον is used of ";sheep"; collectively in such a passage as P Hib I. 32.10 (B.C. 246) πρόβατα λ ̄η ̄, (ὧν) ἔρσ [εν ]ες η ̄, ἄρνες ιγ ̄ . . . ";38 sheep, of which eight are rams, 13 lambs . . ."; Other exx. of the word are P Petr II. 22.6 (iii/B.C.) βοῦς (?) ἢ ὑποζύγιον (";ass";) ἢ πρόβατον, P Oxy II. 244.8 (A.D. 23) πρόβατα τριακόσια εἴκοσι καὶ αἶγας [ἑκατ ]ὸν ἑξήκον [τ ]α καὶ τοὺς ἐπακολουθ (οῦντας) ἄρνας [κ ]αὶ ἐρίφους, P Fay 110.13 (A.D. 94) [ν ]α τὰ πρόβατα ἐκεῖ κοιμηθῆι, ";that the sheep may be folded there,"; and CPR I. 40.11 (A.D. 301) (ἄρουραι) ν ̄ πρὸς κατανομὴν προβάτων.

For the φόρος προβάτων, ";sheep-tax,"; see Wilcken Ostr. i. p. 286. Πρόβατον occurs as a nickname (for a man?) in P Tebt I. 180 (B.C. 92 or 59). In P Ryl II. 73.6 (B. C, 33–30) mention is made of a προβατοκτηνότροφος, ";sheep-herdsman"; : cf. OGIS 655.4 (B.C. 25–4), where Dittenberger’s note now needs correction. Προβατών, ";a sheep-pen,"; occurs in P Cairo Zen I. 59068.2 (B.C. 257), and προβατίων, ";A sheep-stall,"; in BGU IV. 1130.11 (B.C. II).
