Vocabulary of the Greek NT

Like ἐπίλυσις, the verb is used in monetary transactions, e.g. P Grenf I. 26.2 (B.C. 113) ἐπελύσατ [ο ] Ψενενοῦπις Ὀννώφριος δάνειον πυροῦ ἀρ ν ̄ς ̄, a usage hitherto unknown : see further Philologus N.F. xvii. pp. 564 f., 577. For the metaphorical meaning as in the NT, cf. Vett. Val. p.173.6 τὸ τῆς ἀληθείας μέρος ὡς ὑπὸ οὐδενὸς ἀνδρὸς ἐπιλελυμένον αὐτὸς ἐφώτισα, p. 259.4 προεῖπον γὰρ ἐν τοῖς ἔμπροσθεν, ὅτι ἃ μὲν ἐκ τῶν παλαιῶν σκοτεινῶς συντεταγμένα ἐπελυσάμην.
