Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The aspirated form, banned by WH as ";Western,"; and explained by Thumb (Spiritus asper, p. 72) as due to a ";contamination"; of ἐφορκέω and ἐπιορκέω, is common in papyri and inscrr. in the legal formula εὐορκοῦντι μέν μοι εὖ εἴη, ἐφιορκοῦντι δὲ τὰ ἐναντία, ";if my oath is kept, may it be well with me, but if false, the reverse"; : e.g. P Tebt I. 78.17 (B.C. 110–8), P Oxy II. 253.23 (A.D. 19), ib. 255.24 (A.D. 48), OGIS 229.69 (iii/B.C.).
