Vocabulary of the Greek NT

In his famous speech at Corinth, announcing freedom to the Greeks, Nero expresses regret that it had not been in his power to offer it ἀκμαζούσης τῆς Ἑλλάδος, so that more might have shared in his bounty (Syll 37617). The more literal sense appears in P Lond 46.220 (a magical papyrus, iv/A.D.) ( = I. p. 72) ὅσα ἀκμάζει τῶν ὀπωρῶν. According to Moeris (";ἡβᾶν Ἀττ., ἀκμάζειν Ἕλλ.";). Nero’s composition-master must have allowed a vernacular word to sully the purity of the oration.
