Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The word is by no means so common as might have been expected. In the Indexes to Oxyrhynchus Papyri I.-X. it is only noted once, namely P Oxy I. 43 versoiii. 29 (A.D. 295). See also BGU I. 32.3, ib. III. 816.5 (iii/A.D.), and ib. 931.2 (iii/iv A.D.) ἐμετρήθη ἀπὸ ἀποθήκης τῆς μέσης ἐλαίου μετρητὰς γ ̄—these are the only occurrences in BGU I.-IV. In P Tebt II. 347 (a banking account, ii/A.D.) the word is repeatedly prefixed to different items, ";the sums so indicated being apparently ‘deposited’ (in a bank?)"; (Edd.). Add Syll 734.84 (Cos) μηδ᾽ ἀποθήκηι χρᾶσθαι τ [ῆι αὐλ ]ῆι τῆι ἐν τῶι ἱερῶι, and Chrest. II. 96i. 6 (after A.D. 350), where counsel pleads that the defendant should give up ¼ of δωρεᾶς καὶ ἀποθήκης, ἢ τὴν ἀποκατάστασιν ἡμῖν ποιήσασθαι τούτων : Mitteis (p. 116) explains these as ";donatio propter nuptias?"; and ";ein Geschäftsladen."; Prof. Thumb notes that the noun survived in Romance (Span. bodega, Fr. boutique) : this reinforces its ancient Hellenistic record.
