For this strong word (see s.v. ὑβρίζω), cf. the marriage contract P Eleph 1.8 (B.C. 311–10) (= Selections, p. 3) where it is provided that the husband shall not bring in another woman ἐφ᾽ ὕβρει of his wife. See also P Fay 12.17 (c.B.C. 103) ἤγαγον μεθ᾽ ὕβρεως καὶ π ̣λ ̣η ̣γ ̣ῶν, ";they dragged me away with insults and blows,"; P Ryl II. 136.11 (A.D. 34) ὕβριν μοι συνεστησάτωι οὐ τὴν τυχοῦσαν, ";he subjected me to no common outrage"; (Edd.)—complaint of an assault, ib. 145.8 (A.D. 38) πλείστας ὕβ [ρι ]ς τοῖς παρ᾽ ἐμοῦ συντελῶν, ";heaping insults on my dependants"; (Edd.), P Oxy II, 237vi. 15 (A.D. 186) οἰόμενος ἐκ <τού >του παύσασθαι αὐτὴν τῶν εἰς ἐμὲ ὕβρεων, ";expecting that this would induce her to stop her insults"; (Edd.).

For ὕβρις as nearly always ";a sin of the strong and proud,"; see Murray Greek Epic p. 264 ff. : cf. Headlam Herodas, p. 86.
