Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The adj. in its contracted form (as in 2 Timothy 2:20, Revelation 9:20) is found in P Lond 191.11 (an inventory of household furniture, A.D. 103–17) (= II. p. 265) φύλλια ἀργυρᾶ ὀκτώ : cf. P. Lond 124.26 (iv/v A.D.) (= I. p. 122). Constant association with χρυσοῦς produced a mixture of flexion in the fem. : thus ἀργυρῆ BGU II. 388 ii. 22 (ii/iii A.D.), -ῆν P Leid W xxiii. 22 (ii/iii A.D.), but χρυσᾶν Revelation 1:13, P Lond 124.26 (iv/v A.D.) = I. p. 122). For the uncontracted forms, which do not seem to occur in the Ptolemaic papyri (Mayser Gr. p. 293), see 1 Esr 6.17 Α τὰ χρυσᾶ καὶ τὰ ἀργύρεα (ἀργυρᾶ B), and cf. the long British Museum magic papyrus P Lond 121.531 (iii/A.D.) (= I. p. 102) ἐπιγραφόμενον ἐπὶ χρυσέου πετάλου ἢ ἀργυρέου, and OGIS 480.6 (Ephesus, ii/B.C.) Ἄρτεμιν ἀργυρέαν καὶ εἰκόνας ἀργυρέας δύο. See further Helbing Gr., p. 34 f.

The form ἀργυρικός = ";of money"; generally is common both in the papyri and the inscriptions, e.g. P Amh II. 31.6 (B.C. 112) τὴν σιτικὴν μίσθωσιν καὶ τὴν ἀργυρικὴν πρόσοδον ";rents in corn and taxes in money"; (Edd.), P Grenf I. 21.16 (B.C. 126) ]πάρχοντά μοι πάντα σύμβο (λά) τε σιτικὰ [κα ]ὶ ἀργυ (ρικά) ";all contracts belonging to me of corn and of money,"; OGIS 90.21 (the Rosetta stone, B.C. 196) δαπάνας ἀργυρικάς τε καὶ σιτικὰς μεγάλας : cf. BGU I. 14ii. 2 (A.D. 255) λόγος ἀργυρικὸς λημμάτων καὶ ἀναλωμάτων, ib. 15i. 13 (A.D. 194) πράκτορα ἀργυρικῶν.
