Vocabulary of the Greek NT

In the account of a popular demonstration at Oxyrhynchus, P Oxy I. 41.4 (iii/iv A.D.), the prytanis is hailed as δόξα πόλεω [ς. Deissmann (Hellenisierung d. Semitischen Monotheismus, p. 165 f.) throws out the suggestion that the word may originally have had a ";realistic"; meaning in the ordinary Grk of the day, and cites as a partial parallel its use as a name for women and ships (cf. F. Bechtel, Die attischen Frauennamen (1902), p. 132). The plur. δόξαι occurs in the astrological papyrus PSI III. 158.24 .41 (? iii/A.D.) For the Biblical history of the word, see Milligan Thess. p. 27 and Kennedy St Paul’s Conceptions of the Last Things, p. 299 ff. In an early Christian prayer Ntl. Stud. (as cited s.v. δόγμα) p. 69 we have .21 α [ ]νέσεις καὶ δοξολογείας [ἀνα ]φ [έρ ]ομέν σοι. A familiar NT phrase is applied to the sun in P Leid Wxi. 7 (ii/iii A.D.) Ἀχεβυχρωμ, ὃ ὃ (om.) μηνύει τοῦ δίσκου τὴν φλόγα κ (αὶ) τὴν ἀκτῖνα, οὗ ἡ δόξα · ααα, ηηη, ωωω, ὅτι διά σ᾽ ἐνεδοξάσθη ἀέρας (? a new nom., anticipating MGr) : see also below s.v. δύναμις.
