Vocabulary of the Greek NT

";(inner) chamber,"; ";store-chamber."; The syncopated form ταμεῖον (for ταμιεῖον), which is found in the four NT occurrences of the word (Matthew 6:6; Matthew 24:26, Luke 12:3; Luke 12:24), is the prevailing form in the papyri from i/A.D. onwards : see e.g. CPR I. 1.13 (A.D. 83–4), τραπέζ [ης ] ταμείω (ν), ";of the bank of the store-houses,"; and so .30, P Fay 110.7 (A.D. 94) ὃ λέγεις ταμε [ ]ον, ";the storehouse you speak of,"; BGU I. 75 ii. 12 (ii/A.D.) εἰς τὸ ταμεῖον, P Oxy III. 533.9 (ii/iii A.D.) παρὰ τῷ ταμείῳ, and ib. VI. 886.4 (iii/A.D.) (= Selections, p. 111) ἐν τοῖς τοῦ Ἑρμοῦ ταμίοις ";in the archives of Hermes."; In Menander Σαμ. 18 ταμειΐου probably stands for ταμειδίου.

The full form ταμιεῖον is seen in such passages from Ptolemaic times as P Petr II. 32 i. 5 ἐργαζ [ομένου ] μου ἐν τῶι βασιλικῶι ταμιείωι, ";as I was working in the Royal Repository"; (Edd.), ib. III. 73.7 (lease of a shop) ταμιεῖον εἰσιόντων ἐνδέξια ὄγδοον, ";the eighth shop on the right as one enters"; (Edd.), and P Hib I. 31.5 et saepe (c B.C. 270). From Roman times we can cite BGU I. 106.5 (A.D. 199) το [ ] ταμιείου, and P Flor I. 47.6 (A.D. 213–17) ἐντὸς ταμιείου οἰκίας. See further Thackeray Gr. i. p. 63 ff. Ferguson, Legal Terms, p. 76 ff., gives exx. of both forms, ταμιεῖον and ταμεῖον.

For the verb ταμιεύομαι see P Magd 26.5 (B.C. 217 ), where the editor reads τ ]αμιευσόμεθα as against Wilcken’s ἐκτ ]αμιευσόμεθα. The same papyrus .5 and .9 provides other exx. of the compd.
