Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The word is used in its old sense in P Leid Wxiv. 9 (ii/iii A.D.) δαίμων δαιμώνων , in a spell addressed to a divinity. It answers often to the Latin Genius. Thus in a notification of the accession of Nero, P Oxy VII. 1021.9 (A.D. 54) the Emperor is described as ἀγαθὸς δαίμων δὲ τῆς οὐκου ̣μένης (l. οἰκ —), ";the good genius of the world."; Similarly OGIS 666.2 Νέρων ] Κλαύδιος . . . ὁ ἀγαθὸς δαίμων τῆς οἰκουμένης , σὺν ἅπασιν οἷς εὐεργέτησεν ἀγαθοῖς : cf. ib. 672.7 (A.D. 80) with reference to the Nile—ὠρύγη Ἀγαθὸς Δαίμων ποταμὸς ἐπὶ τὰ τρία στερεά κτλ . In a private letter of iii/A.D. the combination occurs as a proper name, P Strass I. 73.4 Ἀγαθὸς Δαίμων σύν σοι εἰσελθὼν διεπέμψατο : cf. BGU II. 494.14 (ii/A.D.), al. For the word in a bad sense, see the magical incantation, P Par 574.1227 ((iii/A.D.) (= Selections, p. 113) πρᾶξις γενναία ἐκβάλλουσα δαίμονας , ";a notable spell for driving out demons,"; and the Christian amulet in which the wearer prays, ὅπως διώξῃς ἀπ᾽ ἐμοῦ τοῦ δούλου σου τὸν δαίμονα προβασκανίας , ";that Thou mayst drive from me Thy servant the demon of witchcraft";—BGU III. 954.9 (c. vi/A.D.) (= Selections, p. 133). In P Grenf II. 76.3 (A.D. 305–6) two νεκροτάφοι from Kusis agree to a formal divorce, seeing that ";owing to some evil deity"; they have renounced their wedded life = ἐπὶ (l. ἐπεὶ ) ἐκ τινὸς πονηροῦ δαίμονος συνέβη αὐτοὺς ἀποζεῦχθαι ἀλλήλων τὴν κοινὴν αὐτῶν συνβίωσιν . So P Cairo Preis 2.12 (A.D. 362) ὡς τῆς γυναικός μου πῖραν λαβοῦσαν (for λαβούσης ) δέμονος , ";in the belief that my wife had had experience of a demon.";
