Vocabulary of the Greek NT

In a literal sense the noun occurs in a formula used in agreements for renting houses, which the tenant undertakes to leave in good condition. Thus P Oxy VIII. 1128.25 (A.D. 173) παραδότω τοὺς τόπους καθαροὺς ἀπὸ κοπρίων καὶ πάσης ἀκαθαρσίας : ib. VI. 912.26 (A.D. 235), BGU II. 393.16 (A.D. 168) ἄν [ευ ] ἀκαθαρσία [ς ], P Lond 216.28 f. (A.D. 94) ( = II. p. 187), P Lips I. 16.19 (A.D. 138) where ἀπό stands without καθαρούς (see under ἀπό). Vettius Valens, p. 2.19, has it in conjunction with κιναιδία : Kroll takes it as ";oris impudicitia (?).";
