Vocabulary of the Greek NT

In OGIS 455.11 (B.C. 39) a temple-enclosure of the goddess Aphrodite is declared ἄσυλονταὐτῷ δικαίῳ ταὐτῇ τε δεισιδαιμονίᾳ , ";eodem jure eademque religione"; as the temple of Artemis at Ephesus. It is in this general sense of ";religion,"; without any pronouncement as to whether it was right or wrong, that the word is to be understood in Acts 25:19.
