Vocabulary of the Greek NT

An apt parallel to the use of this word in 1 Peter 3:7 is afforded by P Oxy II. 261.12 (A.D. 55) where a woman appoints her grandson to act as her representative in a lawsuit—ο ̣ ̣ δυναμένη προσκαρτερῆσαι τῷ κριτηρίῳ διὰ γυναικείαν ἀσθένειαν , ";since she is unable owing to womanly weakness to remain at the court"; (Edd.). See also P Petr I. 12.6 (B.C. 238) as completed II. Introd. p. 12 χιτῶνος ἐρέου γυναικείου , ";a woman’s woollen chiton,"; PSI I. 64.19 (? i/B.C.) in which a woman comes under a solemn promise to a man . . . οὐθενὶ ἄλλωι [ ]νθρώπων σ ̣[υ ]νέσεσθαι κατὰ γυναικεῖον τρόπον πλὴ [ν ] σοῦ , P Lond 191.7 (A.D. 103–17) (= II. p. 264) δίφρος χαλκοῦς γυναικεῖος , P Oxy III. 493.18 (early ii/A.D.) γυνικεῖον (l. γυναικ –) κόσμον , P Hamb I. 10.21 (ii/A.D.) γυναικείας συνθέσις , ";ladies’ evening dresses,"; to which robbers had helped themselves, together with ten πλατύσημο [ι γ ]υ ̣ναικεῖα ̣[ι , ";lati clavi."; The word is naturally quite common.
