Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The noun συρία is applied to ";a Syrian cloth"; in P Hib I. 51.5 (B.C. 245) συρίας λάμβανε ἑξ [αδρ ]α ̣χμους, ";accept Syrian clothes at 6 drachmae"; : see the editors’ note on l..3, and cf. ib. 38.7 (B.C. 252–1), P Cairo Zen I. 59010.25 (c. B.C. 259).

An interesting ex. of the private cult of the Συρία θεός in the Fayûm district is afforded by P Magd 2 (B.C. 222) (= Chrest. I. 101), where we hear of a soldier Μάχατας having erected a shrine in her honour, possibly, as Wilcken suggests, at the instigation of his foreign wife Ἀσία —.3 ἀνοικοδομήσαντος ἐν τῶι αὑτοῦ τόπωι ἱερὸν Συρίας Θεοῦ καὶ Ἀφροδίτης Βερενίκης. On the worship of the Syrian gods, see now U. Wilcken’s paper in Festgabe für Adolf Deissmann (Tübingen, 1927), p. 1 ff.
