Thayer's Expanded Definition
 ὑπόστασις, ὑποστάσεως, (ὑφίστημι), a word very common in Greek authors, especially from Aristotle onward, in widely different senses, of which only those will be noticed which serve to illustrate N. T. usage;

1. a setting or placing under; thing put under, substructure, foundation: Psalm 68:3 (Psalm 69:3>); τοῦ οἴκου, Ezekiel 43:11; τοῦ τάφου, Diodorus 1,66.

2. that which has foundation, is firm; hence,

a. that which has actual existence; a substance, real being: τῶν ἐν ἀερι φαντασμάτων τά μέν ἐστι κατ' ἐμφασιν, τά δέ καθ' ὑπόστασιν, Aristotle, de mundo, 4,19, p. 395{a}, 30; φαντασίαν μέν ἔχειν πλούτου, ὑπόστασιν δέ μή, Artemidorus Daldianus, oneir. 3,14; ( αὐγή) ὑπόστασιν ἰδίαν οὐκ ἔχει, γεννᾶται δέ ἐκ φλογός, Philo de incorruptibil. mundi § 18; similarly in other writings (cf. Sophocles Lexicon, under the word, 5; Liddell and Scott, under the word, III:2).

b. the substantial quality, nature, of any person or thing: τοῦ Θεοῦ ( R. V. substance), Hebrews 1:3 ( Wisdom of Solomon 16:21; ἴδε ... τίνος ὑποστάσεως τίνος εἴδους τυγχάνουσιν οὕς ἐρεῖτε καί νομιζετε Θεούς, Epist. ad' Diogn. 2,1 [ET]; (cf. Suicer, Thesaurus, under the word)).

c. steadiness of mind, firmness, courage resolution (οἱ δέ Ῥόδιοι θεωροῦντες τήν τόν Βυζαντινων ὑπόστασιν, Polybius 4,50, 10; οὐχ οὕτω τήν δύναμιν, ὡς τήν ὑπόστασιν αὐτοῦ καί τολμᾶν καταπεπληγμενων τῶν ἐναντίων, id. 6,55, 2; add, Diodorus 16,32 f; Josephus, Antiquities 18,1, 6); confidence, firm trust, assurance: 2 Corinthians 9:4; 2 Corinthians 11:17; Hebrews 3:14; Hebrews 11:1 (for תִּקְוָה, Ruth 1:12; Ezekiel 19:5; for תּוחֶלֶת, Psalm 38:8 (Psalm 39:8>)). Cf. Bleek, Br. an d. Hebrew ii. 1, pp. 60ff, 462ff; Schlatter, Glaube im N. T., p. 581.

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

";loving warmly"; (Rom. 12:10) : cf. Vett. Val. p. 76.27 τοὺς μὲν γὰρ εὐνουστέρους καὶ φιλοστοργοτέρους θανάτῳ χωρί ζουσι. The subst. φιλοστοργία is common in Wills, where bequests are made κατὰ φιλοστοργίαν, see e.g. P Oxy III.490.4 (A.D. 124), 492.6 (A.D. 130). Other exx. of the subst. are P Tebt II. 408.7 (A.D. 3) τῆι φιλοστοργίᾳ τῶν περί Σωτήριχον, ";out of their regard for Soterichus and his people"; (Edd.), P Oxy III. 495.12 (A.D. 181–9) μητρικῇ φιλοστοργίᾳ, P Flor III. 338.11 (iii/A.D.) καὶ νῦν τάχα ἡ σὴ σπυδὴ καὶ φιλοστοργεία κατανεικήσῃ τὴν ἐμὴν ̣ . ἀκαιρείαν, and Chrest. II. 361.16 (A.D. 360) ἐνέδειξών (l. ἐνέδειξάν) μοι εὔνοιαν καὶ φιλοστοργείαν.

For the adverb cf. OGIS 257.4 (B.C. 109) σοῦ ἐμνμονεύο μεν [φιλοστ ]όργως and Preisigke 5294.9 (A.D. 235) ε [ ]νοίως καὶ φιλοστόργ [ως. A good ex. of the verb occurs in Syll.3 1267.23 (ij/iii A.D.) (=Deissmann. LAE2, p. 140) ἐγὼ ὑπὸ τέκνων γονεῖς φιλοστοργεῖσθαι ἐνομοθέτησα —an Isis inscr. from Ios.
