Vocabulary of the Greek NT

This verb, in NT only Luke 9:45, is asserted by Nägeli (p. 57) to be absent from the papyri. This is a still more remarkable oversight than that noted under αἰδώς. A few examples will suffice. P Eleph 13.3 (B.C. 223–2) ἐχάρην ἐπὶ τῶι με αἰσθέσθαι τὰ κατά σε, P Oxy III. 472.3 (c. A.D. 130) οὔτ᾽ ἔφη πρός τινα αἰσθέσθαι οὐδενός (";noticed anything";), BGU II. 372i. 16 (A.D. 154) ]στωσαν [μ ]ὲν τ ̣[ ]ν. . . ἐκ ταύτ [ης ] τῆς αἰτ [ίας ἔ ]τι κατεχόμενον α [ἰσ ]θήσεσθαι τῆς τοῦ μεγίστου Αὐτοκράτορος εὐ [μ ]εν [εί ]ας (see Chrest. I. p. 33), ib. 417.4 (ii/iii A.D.) αἰσθόμε (νον) τὴν τοῦ καιροῦ πικρίαν (note the accus. in a vernacular document), ib. 531ii. 19 (ii/A.D.) α [ ]σθόμενος πῶς με φιλεῖς, and an ostrakon in Archiv vi. p. 220 (iii/B.C.) ἀπόστειλον τοῖς ὑπογεγραμμένοις τὰς πεταλίας κρυφῆι καὶ μηθεὶς αἰσθανέσθω. But it is hardly necessary to go on to the other five or six volumes in which the index contains this verb. It survives in MGr.
