Vocabulary of the Greek NT

OGIS 762.4 (ii/B.C.) βοηθείτω κατὰ τὸ εὔκαιρον, Michel 164.25 (c. B.C. 140) μερίσαι Ἀπολλωνίωι ξένιον ὅσον ἂν αὐτοῖς εὔκαιρον εἶ [ν ]αι φαίνηται. The superlative is found in P Petr II. 12 (1).15 (B.C. 241) μεταθεῖναι τοὺς βωμοὺς ἐπὶ τοὺς εὐκαιροτάτους τόπους καὶ ἐπιφανεστάτους ἐπὶ τῶν δωμάτων, ";to remove the altars to the most convenient and conspicuous place on the houses"; (Ed.). It maybe mentioned that Pallis A Few Notes, p. 11 regards the adj. in Mk in 6.21 γενομένης ἡμέρας εὐκαίρου, as = an ";empty"; day, a day without work, a festival; the meaning is supported from Byzantine (see Sophocles Lex. s.v.) and modern Greek.
