For an earlier discussion, see the appendix to
"<t>The Significance of Greek for Jews in the Roman Empire</>,"
by Kurt Treu, <p>Kairos</> NF 15, Hft. 1/2 (1973), 123-144. 
[Translated by William Adler, with some fine tuning by Robert 
Kraft, from the original title: "<t>Die Bedeutung des Griechischen 
f&u%;r die Juden im r&o%;mischen Reich</>." English translation
