Moulton & Milligan, Vocabulary of NT Greek, 1930 Eerdmans.
Also Celas Spicq, Theological Lexicon of NT, Baker 199?,
Spicq makes more use of the papyri than other Theological Lexicons.

Also the standard lexicons like Bauer Arnt Gingrich Danker (BAGD) do not
exactly ignore the papyri. So I don't know if you really need a lexicon
devoted specifically to the papyri.
