Vocabulary of the Greek NT

P Oxy VII. 1068.3 (iii/A.D.) μὴ εὐπορήσας πλοῖον ἐν τῷ Ἀρσενοείδῃ ἔγραψα τῷ κυρίῳ μου Κληματίῳ κτλ., ";finding no boat available in the Arsinoïte nome I wrote to my lord Clematius etc."; (Ed.). PSI IV. 299.18 (iii/A.D.) ἐπὰν πλοίου εὐπορηθῶ, P Flor III, 367.8 (iii/A.D.) πολλάκις μου. . . χάρτας ἐπιστολικο [ὺς ἀπο ]στείλαντος, ἵν᾽ εὐπορῇς τοῦ γρά [φειν ] μοι, .17 ἵν ]α καὶ διὰ τῶν γραμ [μάτων ὁ φίλος εὐ ]π ̣ορῇ μανθάνων [τὰ σοῦ ? See also the curious mantic document where prognostications are derived from involuntary twitchings, P Ryl I. 28.15 (iv/A.D.) ὀσφύος δεξιὸν μέρος ἐὰν ἅλληται μεγάλως εὐπορήσει κ ̣α ̣[ ] δ ̣ο ̣υ ̣ͅλ ̣ος καὶ πένης ἐκ κόπων, ";if the right part of the loin quiver, a slave or poor man will prosper greatly after distress"; (Edd.), cf. .125, and from the inscrr. Michel 984.9 (ii/B.C. ad init.) εὐπορῶν πλεονάκις ἐκ τῶν ἰδίων. A somewhat unusual use of the verb is found in P Ryl II. 162.27 (A.D. 159) where a woman who has bought a half share of a house is described as—εὐ ̣π ̣ο ̣ρ ̣[οῦσα σὺν τοῖς ] νυ ̣ͅν ̣ δικαί [ο ]ις πᾶσι καὶ πωλοῦσα καὶ ὑποτιθο ̣ῦσα κτλ., ";enjoying it with all present rights, having the power of sale, mortgage,"; etc. (Edd.).
