Vocabulary of the Greek NT

A few miscellaneous exx. will suffice for this common verb—P Lille I. 5.7 (B.C. 260–59) εἰς σπέρμα, πρὸς αἰς φ [ησι ]ν ἔχειν πυῥοὖ π ̄γ ̄, ";pour semence, en plus des 83 artabes de blé qu’il dit avoir"; (Ed.), P Tebt II. 280.11 (B.C. 126) ὧν ἔφη ἠγπρἁκέναι᾽ κατὰ σὑγγραφήν, ";which (space) he stated he had bought by a contract,"; P Amh II. 30.44 (ii/B.C.) ἔφη ἐκχωρήσει <ι >ἐκ τῆς οἰκίας ἐν ἡ [μ ]έραις ι ̄, P Flor I. 49.6 (A.D. 209) Σαραπίωνος, ὥς φἡσιν, [ἀπὸ τῆ ]ς μητροπόλεως, and ib. 127.2 (A.D. 256) σὺν θεῷ φάναι προσδόκα ἡμᾶς, ";if God pleases, expect us.";

For the part, we may cite P Petr III. 30.6 (iii/B.C.) φαμένη καταστήσεσθαι πρός [με, ";though she said that she would appear against me"; (Edd.), and its frequent occurrence in the subscriptions of letters in such phrases as—P Ryl II. 155.23 (A.D. 138–61) ἐγρα ]ψα ὑ [πὲ ]ρ αὐτῆς κα [ ] τοῦ κυρίου φαμένων μὴ εἰδ [έν ]αι γράμ [ματα, and ib. 88.27 (A.D. 156) ἐγράφη διὰ Ἀμμωνίου νομογρἅφοὐ καὶ ἔστιν [ ] Διωγᾶς φάμενος μὴ εἰδέναι γράμματἀ, ";written by Ammonius, scribe of the nome; Diogas, professing to be illiterate"; (Edd.).
