Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The late P Amh II. 145.9 (iv/v A.D.) τὸ γνωστὸν τῆς πρὸς ἀλ [λήλο ]υς συνηθείας , ";the knowledge of our intimacy,"; may be taken as confirming, so far as it goes, the ordinary LXX and NT usage of γν ̣—";known"; rather than ";knowable";—in Romans 1:19. For the rare use of the word as applied to persons (Luke 2:44; Luke 23:49, John 18:15 f.) Abbott (Fourfold Gospel, p. 362 ff.) prefers the strong rendering ";familiar friend";; but see contra J. B. Mayor Exp. VIII. vii. p. 79 ff. W. M. Ramsay (Athenaeum, Sept. 7, 1912) cites a (iv/A.D.) inscription, Εὐδαίμων Γνωστοῦ υἱὸς τεκμορεύσας μετὰ τῶν ἰδίων θρεπτῶν Μηνὶ Ἀσκαηνῷ εὐχήν , where Gnostos ";the known"; might be a reminiscence of 1 Corinthians 8:2.
