Vocabulary of the Greek NT

ἁμαρτωλός appears in OGIS 55.30 (B.C. 240) ἐὰν [δὲ ] μὴ συντελῆι ὁ ἄρχων καὶ οἱ πολῖται τὴν [θυσί ]αν κατ᾽ ἐνιαυτόν , ἁμαρτωλοὶ ἔστωσαν [θεῶ ]ν πάντων , ";sinners against all the gods."; Cf. also the common phrase in sepulchral epitaphs in the southwest of Asia Minor containing a threat against any one who shall desecrate the tomb, ἁμαρτωλὸς ἔστω θεοῖς (κατα )χθονίοις , ";let him be as a sinner before the (sub)terranean gods"; : see Deissmann LAE p. 115, who regards the genitive after ἁμαρτωλός as a possible ";provincialism of S.W. Asia Minor."; (See under ἔνοχος .) He cites another occurrence, from the same locality, with the formula as in OGIS 55 (p. 116 n.). Schlageter p. 24 adds IG III. 461 a. These instances are sufficient to prove the ";profane"; use of the word, as Cremer (ap. Deissmann ut s.) admitted in his Appendix.
