ἑκούσιος is found in what appears to be a legal formula in P Oxy X. 1280.4 (iv/A.D.) ὁμολογῶ ἑκουσίᾳ καὶ αὐθαιρέτῳ γνώμῃ συντεθῖσθαί με πρὸς σέ, ";I acknowledge that I have of my own free will covenanted with you"; (Edd.) : cf. ib. XII. 1426.14 (A.D. 332), and P Lips I. 26.5 cited s.v. ἀμετανόητος. See also P Ryl II. 174.23 (A.D. 112) ἑκ [ο ]ύσιον κατ [ο ]χήν, ";voluntary notification"; of a personal claim with reference to the repayment of a loan, and P Oxy III. 473.3 (A.D. 138–160) the decree in honour of a gymnasiarch, who had devoted himself εἰς ἑκούσιον γυμν [ασ ]ιαρχίαν.
