Vocabulary of the Greek NT

P Tebt I. 52.9 (c. B.C. 114) has ἕτερα βιοτικὰ σύμβολα , ";other business documents,"; a good illustration of the NT passages (Luke 21:34, 1 Corinthians 6:3 f.). Still better is P Ryl II. 125.11 (A.D. 28–9) καὶ ἐμοῦ χωρισθέντος εἰς ἀποδημίαν βιωτ ̣[ι ]κῶν χάριν , ";when I had left home on business concerning my livelihood"; (Edd.). E. Rohde, Zum griech. Roman, p. 38 f. (Kleine Schriften II.) has a note on the phrase βιωτικαὶ διηγήσεις , ";stories of ordinary life,"; with other phrases from literary Κοινή employing the word. It occurs often in Vettius Valens.
