Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For the metaphorical sense which this word has in 2 Peter 1:20 see Vett. Val. p. 221.9 τὰς δὲ αἰτίας ἢ τὰς λοιπὰς ἐπιλύσεις μὴ ἐπιγνῷ, p. 330.10 οὐ μὴν κατὰ τὴν δόκησιν τινῶν ἀμφιβόλους ἐπιλύσεις καὶ γραφὰς ἀναρίθμους περιττῶν συντάξεων. In the papyri the word is used for the ";discharge"; of an account, etc., as in P Eleph 27.23 (B.C. 223-2) ἐπειδὴ. . . τετάγμεθα τὸ ἀργύριον καὶ τοὺς τόκους ἐπὶ τὴν βασιλικὴν τράπεζαν, καλῶς ποιήσεις δοὺς ἡμῖν τὴν ἐπίλυσιν, P Grenf II. 26.27 (B.C. 103), ib. 30.31 (B.C. 102), etc. : see further s.v. ἐπιλύω.
