Vocabulary of the Greek NT

P Par 63ii. 45 (ii/B.C.) μετὰ πάσης ἀκριβείας, τὴν ἐκτ [ε ]νε [σ ]τάτην [ποι ]ήσασθαι πρόνοιαν combines some characteristic Lucan and Pauline words. P Lond 121841 (iii/A.D.) ( = I. p. 111), has ἐπ᾽ ἀκριβίας, an adverbial phrase like ἐπ᾽ ἀληθείας. A rather literary document, an advocate’s speech for prosecution—suspected by the editors of being a rhetorical exercise—contains the sentence ἄμεινον δ᾽ αὗται καὶ σαφέστερον τὴν περὶ τοῦτο ἀκρείβειαν καὶ τὴν ἐπιμέλειαν Μαξίμ [ο ]υ δηλώσουσιν (P Oxy III. 47111 ff., ii/A.D.), which the editors translate, ";These letters will still better and more clearly exhibit Maximus’ exactness and care in this matter."; Near the end of the petition of Dionysia (P Oxy II. 237viii. 39, A.D. 186) we have μετὰ πάσης ἀκρειβείας φυλασσέσθωσαν (sc. αἱ ἀπογραφαί); and in P Petr III. 36 (a) verso 26 f. a prisoner complains to the Epimeletes that it was on account of the ";punctiliousness"; of his predecessor in office that he had been confined—[ ]κ ̣ρ ̣ι ̣βείας ἕνεκεν ἀπήχθην. The verb ἀκριβεύειν, ";to get exact instructions,"; appears in P Amh II. 1547 (vi/vii A.D.) ἐὰν μὴ ἀκριβεύσωμαι ἀφ᾽ ὑμῶν περὶ ἑκάστου πράγματος : Crönert’s earliest citation for this verb is ";Barnabas"; 2.10. It may be formed by association with ἀκρίβεια, by the influence of the close relation of -εια and -εύω.
