Vocabulary of the Greek NT

To Deissmann’s citation (BS, P. 215) of this word from an inscr. of Nisyros (pre-Christian ?) γενόμενον εὐάρεστον πᾶσι (Mittheilungen des athen. Instituts 15, p. 134.11 f.) to dispose of Cremer’s claim that it belongs only to Bibl. and eccles. Greek, we may add Priene 114.15 (after B.C. 84) γενηθεὶς δὲ εὐάρεσ [τος ] ἐν τοῖς τῆς γυμνασιαρχίας ἀναλώμασιν : cf. Rouffiac Recherches, p. 32 f. See also such passages as P Fay 90.17 (A.D. 234) τὸ λ [α ]χανόσπ (ερμον) λαμβάνιν εὐάρεστον, P Flor I. 30.30 (A.D. 362) τὰς τοῦ πύρου εὐαρέ [στου ἀρταβά ]ς, P Strass I. 1.9 (A.D. 510) ἐν οἴνῳ καλλίστῳ καὶ εὐαρέστῳ, and P Gen I. 15.2 (Byz.) τὴν τιμὴν σίτου εὐαρέστου ἀρταβῶν τεσσάρων, where the adj. has the meaning ";choice,"; ";in good condition."; See also s.v. ἀρεστός.
