Vocabulary of the Greek NT

In P Hib I. 52.18 (c. B.C. 245) we find Ὦρος Πνᾶτος ἱερεὺς γόητος , on which the editors remark that if γόητος is a genitive, then ";we must suppose the existence of a deity called ‘the Wizard’; if a nominative (of an unknown form), it is a very curious epithet to apply to a priest."; A subst. γοητεία is found in Vettius Valens, p. 238.26.
