Vocabulary of the Greek NT

With the Christian inscription cited s.v. ἐγκράτεια sub fin. may be compared another inscription erected in honour of a certain Orestina ";who lived in continence";—ἐνκρατευσαμένη (Ath. Mittheil., 1888, p. 272) : see Ramsay Luke, p. 399 f. where ";no extravagant asceticism"; is thought to be implied in any of these terms.
