Vocabulary of the Greek NT

In P Oxy XII. 1467.5 (A.D. 263) reference is made to certain laws which entitle women ";who are honoured with the right of three children";—ταῖς γυναιξὶν ταῖς τῶν τριῶν τέκνων δικαίῳ κεκοσμημένα [ι ]ς —to act without a guardian. The metaphorical use of the verb, as in Titus 2:10, is seen in Cagnat IV. 288.9 (ii/B.C.) κ [εκ ]όσμηκε τὸν αὑτοῦ [β ]ίον τῆι καλλίστηι παρρησίαι, and in the important Priene 105.36 (B.C. 9), where Augustus is described as ";having made war to cease, and established order everywhere";—τὸν παύσαντα μὲν πόλεμον, κοσμήσοντα [δὲ πάντα. Epict. iii. 1. 26 τὸ λογικὸν ἔχεις ἐξαίρετον · τοῦτο κοσμει καὶ καλλώπιζε · τὴν κόμην δ᾽αφες τῷ πλάσαντι ὡς αὐτὸς ἠθέλησεν, ";your reasoning faculty is the distinctive one : this you must adorn and make beautiful. Leave your hair to Him that formed it in accordance with His will"; (Matheson), may be cited in illustration of 1 Peter 3:3 f.
