Vocabulary of the Greek NT

In OGIS 441 (B.C. 81) Ἐπαφρόδιτος appears as a surname of Sulla (= Felix). In the papyri the spelling of the name, which is common, is generally Ἐπαφρόδειτος, e.g. P Oxy IV. 743.25 (B.C. 2) ἤλθαμεν ἐπὶ Ἐπαφρόδειτον. For the adj. see P Ryl II. 77.36 (A.D. 192) ἐπὶ τῇ ἐπαφροδείτῳ ἡγεμονίᾳ Λαρκίου Μέμορος, ";during the delightful praefecture of Larcius Memor"; (Edd.).
