Vocabulary of the Greek NT

P Rev Ll. .12 (B.C. 258) τοῦ πλείονος καὶ τοῦ ἐλάσσονος κατὰ λόγον, ";for more or less in proportion,"; P Petr II. 38(b).2 (iii/B.C.) πλείονος τιμῆς, ";at a higher price,"; PSI VI. 617.7 (iii/B.C.) ἵνα μὴ εἰς πλείονα ἀνηλώ [ματ ]α ἐμπίπτω, P Lille I. 26.3 (iii/B.C.) (= Witkowski.2, p. 49) ἡ κώμη ἔρημος διὰ τὸ πλείω χρόνον μὴ βεβρέχθαι, and P Oxy I. 41.5 (iii/iv A.D.) ἐπὶ σοῦ τὰ ἀγαθὰ καὶ πλέον γίνεται, ";under you our blessings increase ever more"; (Edd.), acclamation to a prytanis at a public meeting.

Adverbial phrases are P Giss I. 47.10 (time of Hadrian) ἀντὶ πλείονος, ";under its value,"; P Ryl II. 65.15 (B.C. 67 ?) ἐπὶ πλεῖον, BGU I. 282.29 (after A.D. 175) ἐπὶ ̣τ ̣ο ̣πλεῖον ἢ ἔλασσον, and PSI V. 514.5 (B.C. 252–1) σπούδασον μάλιστα μὲν πρὸ πλείονος, εἰ δὲ μή, τό γ᾽ ἐλάχιστον πρὸ τριῶν ἡμερῶν ἐν Ἀλεξανδρείαι καταστ [ῆναι ? For the meaning ";several,"; which is found in the phrase (ἐπὶ) πλείους ἡμέρας (quater in Ac), we may compare P Ryl II. 65.9 (B.C. 67 ?) πλείονα σώματα, ";several corpses."; For πλέον ἔλαττον, plus minus, cf. BGU IV. 872.1 (Byz.).

The indeclinable πλείω in Matthew 26:53 אBD (cf. Blass Gr. p. 108) can be paralleled from P Oxy II. 274.6 (A.D. 89–97) πρὸς ὧι κεκλήρωται. . . πλείω πήχεις ἐννέα τέταρτον ὄγδοον —registration of property. As regards spelling Mayser (Gr. i. p. 69) has shown that πλείων has progressively ousted πλέων in B.C. papyri. The marked preponderance of the ει form in the NT (cf. WH Notes.2, p. 158) shows that in this particular our uncials faithfully represent their originals. In MGr a double comparative form πλειότερος is used, while πλέον (still used in the written language) takes the forms πλέο, πλιό, πιό.
