Vocabulary of the Greek NT

So far as we have noticed, this word is rare in the papyri, though it occurs very frequently in the inscriptions. From the papyri we can quote P Rein 10.9 (B.C. 111), where it is used as a name or title of Cleopatra : cf. Syll 763 Ἲσιδι Δικαιοσύνηι with the editor’s note, BGU IV. 1138.4 (B.C. 19), in a cancelled line, ἐπὶ τὸ (ν) τῆς δικ ̣α ̣ι ̣ο ̣σ ̣υ ̣νη (ς) σ ̣ο ̣υ ̣ [χ ]ρηματισ (μόν), in a petition to an epistrategus. P Leid Wxvii. 89 (ii/iii A.D.) is addressed to a deity οὗ ἡ δικ (αι)οσύνη οὐκ ἀποκινῖται, οὗ αἱ μοῦσαι ὑμνοῦσι τὸ ἔνδοξον (ὄνομα). In the magic P Lond 46.403 (iv/A.D.) (= I. p. 78) it is found in a hymn addressed to Hermes. In P Thead 23.9 (A.D. 342) a man petitions Flavius Abinnaeus with reference to his neighbour who has attacked his sheep ληστρικῷ τρόπ [ ] . . . παρὰ τὴν [δικα ]ι ̣ο ̣σύνην, ";after the manner of a brigand, contrary to justice."; From the inscrr. it is sufficient to add OGIS 339.43 (c. B.C. 120) διὰ τὴν τῶν ἀνδρῶν δικαιοσύνην τε καὶ φιλοτιμίαν, ib. 438.8 (i/B.C.) ἄνδρα ἀγαθὸν γενόμενον καὶ διενένκαντα πίστει καὶ ἀρετῇ καὶ δ [ικ ]αιοσύνῃ καὶ εὐσεβείαι (cf. 2 Peter 1:5 ff.), Cagnat IV. 247.5 (c. B.C. 150), where the Demos of Assos, having been asked by that of Stratonicea to appoint an arbitrator for them, gives itself a testimonial as διὰ παντὸς πρόνοιαν ποιούμενος περὶ δικαιοσύνης. The Index in Syll III. contains about thirty references for the word.
