I have frequently come across characters (esp in the papyri) who identify
themselves (especially in official notices of birth or death) as ASHMOS or
as having a scar (OULH) somewhere on their body/face. This looks pretty
common, so I assume the classicists among us can tell me what that all

In what sense can a city be ASHMOS (Acts 21:39)?

Thanks in advance
