Vocabulary of the Greek NT

P Oxy VI. 886.10 (iii/A.D.) (= Selections, p. 111) ἐπικαλοῦ με ̣̣[ν ] (?) τὸν (ἥλιον ) κὲ τοὺς ἐν βυθῷ θεοὺς πάντας , ";call upon the sun and all the gods in the deep";—in a magic formula. From the same kind of literature we may cite P Leid W x. 23 (ii/iii A.D.) ἀναπνεύσας γὰρ πωππύσει ἐκ τοῦ βηθοῦ , ";respirans enim poppysmum edit ex profundo,"; and xxv. 28 ἐν τῷ βυθῷ τὴν δύναμιν ἔχουσαν ἐμοί , ";in profundo potentiam habentem mihi"; (Ed.). The word was prominent in Valentinian speculation, and it is not surprising that it should figure in magic papyri, which breathe a kindred air.
