BGU IV. 1043.3 (iii/A.D.) contains the word ἐνκακήσα [ντος (?), but in an uncertain context : it is, however, worth recording in view of the poverty of the ";profane"; attestation of this verb. See also Polyb. iv. 19. 10 τὸ μὲν πέμπειν τὰς βοηθείας. . . ἐνεκάκησαν, ";they omitted through cowardice to send assistance,"; and Vett. Valens, p. 201.15 ἐκκακοῦντες. On the form cf. WH Notes.2, p. 156 f.
