Vocabulary of the Greek NT

So in Acts 25:7 (all uncials), hitherto without external parallel : the confusion between -αω and -οω forms recalls ἡσσᾶσθαι and (Ion.) ἑσσοῦσθαι. It is now supported by P Fay 111.8 (A.D. 95–6) ( = Selections, p. 66) ̣ [ὀν ]ηλάτης τὼ αἰτίωμα περιεπύησε, ";the donkey-driver shifted the blame from himself."; The generally illiterate character of the document somewhat discounts the value of its evidence.
