Vocabulary of the Greek NT

An interesting example of this adj. is found in a letter from the Emperor Vespasian confirming certain privileges bestowed on an athletic club by the Emperor Claudius, P Lond 1178.34 (A.D. 194) (= III. p. 216) εἰδ ]ὼς ὑμῶν τῶν ἀθλητῶν τὸ ἔνδοξον καὶ φιλότειμον πάντα ὅσα [καὶ ] ὁ Κλαύδιος αἰτησαμένοις ὑμεῖν συνεχώρησε καὶ αὐτὸς φυλάττειν [π ]ροαιροῦμαι. In P Leid Wxiv. 9 (ii/iii A.D.) we have an invocation which runs—βασιλεῦ βασιλέων. . . ἔνδοξο (l.ε) ἐνδοξοτάτων, and in the curious mantic text P Ryl I. 28.108 (iv/A.D.) the twitching of the right leg is said to portend that the man will ";become illustrious";—γενέσθαι ἔνδοξον. In P Oxy VI. 943.4 (vi/A.D.) an agreement is reached τῷ ἐνδόξῳ οἴκῳ regarding the payment of certain dues. For the adverb we may cite OGIS 513.11 (iii/A.D.) where a priestess is described—ίερασαμένην ἐνδόξως καὶ μεγαλοπρεπῶς : cf. Kaibel 358.3 ζήσασα ἐνδόξως.
