Vocabulary of the Greek NT

Syll 226.45 (iii/B.C.) πραθέντος τε τοῦ στόλου εἰς βασίλεια , the palace of the satrap Saitaphernes. Dittenberger quotes Boeckh as arguing from the absence of the article that β . was here almost a proper name, as in Herod. iv. 20 : D. however is not convinced that the reference is to the same place. P Petr II. 23 (2).1 shows βασίλειος qualifying γραμματεύς , instead of the regular βασιλικός . In the magic papyrus P Lond 46.448 (iv/A.D.) (= I. p. 79) βασίλιον is used with a symbol which the editor understands as = ";sceptre"; : cf. Wisdom of Solomon 5:16 τὸ βασίλειον τῆς εὐπρεπείας , ";the crown of royal dignity.";
