Vocabulary of the Greek NT

To illustrate this NT ἅπ. εἰρ. (Titus 2:8) Deissmann (BS p. 200 f.) cites from the inscriptions a sepulchral epitaph CIG 1971 b5 (Thessalonica, A.D. 165), where the word is applied to the deceased, and a similar usage in an inscription at Rome IGSI 21393 (date ?) (ἄμεμπτος, ἀκατάγνωστος), also a deed of tenure from the Fayûm, BGU I. 3088 (Byz.) ( = Chrest. II. 278) ἐπάναγκες ἐπιτελέσωμεν τὰ πρὸς τὴν καλλιεργίαν τῶν ἀρουρῶν ἔργα πάντα ἀκαταγνώστ [ως ]. Add P Oxy I. 14015, P Lond 11315 ( = I. p. 209), P Grenf I. 5716 and ib. 5811 (all vi/A.D.) : also P Giss I. 5615 (vi/A.D.) where the editor cites similar expressions, such as ἀκαταφρονήτως, ἀναμφιβόλως. Nägeli (p. 47) compares εὐκατάγνωστος in P Tor I. 1viii. 11 (ii/B.C.).
