In P Oxy I. 33ii. 13 (ii/A.D.) (= Chrest I. 20) a certain Appianus charges the Emperor Marcus Aurelius (?) with τυραννία ἀφιλοκαγαθία ἀπαιδία (presumably ἀπαιδευσία ), after extolling his deified father as φιλόσοφος , ἀφιλάργυρος , and φιλάγαθος . Vettius Valens has the negative of a similar compound ἀφιλόκαλος , also found in Plutarch. Nägeli (p. 52) cites from an inscr. of ii/iii A.D. (Tanais) the strengthened compound παραφιλάγαθος .
