Vocabulary of the Greek NT

In P Eleph 1.6 (a marriage contract, B.C. 311–10) ( = Selections, p. 2) provision is made that if the bride κακοτεχνοῦσα ἁλίσκηται ἐπὶ αἰσχύνηι τοῦ ἀνδρός, ";shall be detected doing anything wrong to the shame of her husband,"; he shall be entitled to take certain steps against her : cf. P Genesis 21:11 (ii/B.C.) (as completed, Archiv iii. p. 388) μηδ᾽ αἰ [σ ]χύνειν Μενεκράτην ὅσα φέρει ἀνδρὶ αἰσχύνην —the same formula in P Tebt I. 104.30 (B.C. 92). So P Par 47.25 (c. B.C. 153) ( = Selections, p. 23) ὑπὸ τῆς αἰσχύνης, ";for very shame,"; P Oxy III. 471.78 (ii/A.D.) ἅπαξ γὰρ ἐν ἔθει τῆς α [ἰσ ]χύνης γενόμενον, ";for when once accustomed to his shame.";
