Vocabulary of the Greek NT

In the letter of a slave to her master, P Giss I. 17.5 ft. (Hadrian) ἠγωνίασα, κύριε, οὐ μετρίως, ἵνα ἀκούσω ὅτι ἐνώθρευσας, ἀλλὰ χάρις τοῖς θεοῖς πᾶσι ὅτι σε διαφυλάσσουσι ἀπρόσκοπον, the context implies that . must be understood in the sense of ";free from hurt or harm."; So in the same family correspondence, ib. 22.9 [ναλ ]α ̣μβ ̣ανούσης σε ἀπρόσ [κοπ ]ο ̣ν καὶ ἱλαρώτατον. In the same again, ib. 79iv. 8 ἵνα μετὰ φιλίας καὶ ἀπροσ ̣κόπως ἐξέλθωμεν ἀ ̣π᾽ αὐτῶν ἐπ᾽ ἀγαθῶι ";in Freundschaft und ohne Ärger und Anstoss"; (Ed.). Under the form ἀπρόσκοπτος, it is found in the late (apparently heathen) inscription from Messana, IGSI 404 Ἀνδρόβιος Λύκιος ναύκληρος ἔζησε ἀπρόσκοπτος ἔτη λ ̄ς ̄ (see Nägeli, p. 43) in the metaphorical sense of Philippians 1:10 ";blameless.";

It is clear that we need not be longer concerned with Grimm’s note, already discounted by Thayer, that the adj. is ";not found in profane authors.";

[Supplemental from 1930 edition]

For subst. ἀπροσκοπία, see Preisigke 6297.4 (ii/A.D.).
