Vocabulary of the Greek NT

παιδίσκη from meaning originally ";a young woman"; came in later Greek to denote ";a female slave"; : see Rutherford NP, p. 312 f., Kennedy, Sources, p. 40 f. Exx. of this meaning, as in LXX and NT, are—PSI IV. 406.25 (iii/B.C.) Δριμύλος παιδίσκην ἠγόραζεν (δραχμὰς) τ ̄, P Giss I. 2i. 13 (B.C. 173) παιδίσκην δο [ύλην αὐτῆς ] ἧι ὄνομα Στολίς, P Grenf I. 43.3 (ii/B.C.) ]φροδισία καὶ ἡ θυγάτηρ καὶ ἡ παιδίσκη, BGU I. 95.19 (ii/A.D.) ὑπάρχι δὲ τ [ῇ θυγατρὶ ] παιδίσκη δούλη Τασου [χάρ ]ιον, and the illiterate P Oxy VII. 1069.19 (iii/A.D.) τὴν πεδείσκην μου δὲ πρὸ λόγον ἀνάγκασον φειλοπονεῖστε (= φιλοπονεῖσθαι), ";make my slave-girl be properly industrious"; (Ed.). Other reff. in Rostovtzeff, Large Estate. p, 115 f. In PSI VI. 667 (iii/B.C.) a παιδίσκη writes to her employer that she is ";tired of dragging wood"; (κεκ ̣[μηκυῖ ?]α ξυλοφοροῦσα ̣), but ";does not wish to go on strike"; (οὐ θέλουσα ἀναχωρῆσαι). On the honoured place which female slaves frequently occupied in the family see Wilcken Ostr. i. p. 686, and cf. Milligan Here and There, p. 981.

The masc. ὁ παιδίσκος is not found in the Ptolemaic papyri, but see P Strass I. 56.28 (ii/iii A.D.).
