Vocabulary of the Greek NT

τελευτάω is trans. = ";bring to an end"; in BGU I. 361ii. 18 (A.D. 184) τελευτᾶν τ [ὸν ] βίον. For the general intrans. meaning ";die,"; which the verb shows from v/B.C. onwards, it is enough to cite from the papyri such passages as P Magd 2.6 (B.C. 222) ὁ ἀνήρ μου τετελεύτηκεν, P Fay 29.9 (notice of death—A.D. 37) ὁ ἀδ [ε ]λ (φὸς) Πενεοῦρις. . . τετελεύτηκεν ἐν τῷ Μεσ [ο ]ρὴ μην [ ] τοῦ πρώτο [υ ] (ἔτους) Γαίου Καίσαρος Σεβαστοῦ Γερμανικοῦ, ";my brother Peneouris has died in the month Mesore of the first year of Gaius Caesar Augustus Germanicus,"; cf, 16 ὅπως ταγῆι τ ̣ο ̣υ ̣[του ] ο ̣̀ν ̣[ο ]μ ̣α ̣ ἐν τῆι τῶν [τετ ]ελευτηκότων τάξ [ει κατὰ ] τ ̣ο ̣̣ ε ̣͗[θ ]ος, ";in order that his name may according to custom be placed in the list of deceased persons,"; P Oxy III. 475.25 (A.D. 182) ἔπεσεν καὶ ἐτελε [ ]τησεν, ib. VI. 928.3 (ii/iii A.D.) Ζωπύρου τελευτήσαντος, ";now that Zopyrus is dead,"; P Strass I. 73.13 (iii/A.D.) ὁ μικρὸς Μῖμος ἐτελεύτησεν, and from the inscrr. Syll 895.1 ἐτελεύτησα ἐμβὰς (ε)ἰς ἔτη πέντε, and ib. 908 (= .3 505).1 (c. B.C. 227) τῶν κατὰ τὸν σεισμὸν τελευτασάντων. The mummy-ticket Preisigke 3931.3 (A.D. 123) shows the impf. ἐτελεύτα.

In the florilegium PSI II. 120.31 (iv/A.D. ?) it is suggested that there is no cause to grieve over those who die (τοῖς ἀποθνησκ ̣[ο ]ῦσιν), unless it be over those who end their lives in a disgraceful manner ( ̣π ̣ὶ τοῖς αἰσχρῶς τελευτῶσι).
