Vocabulary of the Greek NT

An interesting example of this adverb is found in the letter in which the Emperor Claudius thanked a Gymnastic Club for the golden crown they had sent him to commemorate his victory over the Britons—τὸν πεμ [φ ]θέντ [α μο ]ι ̣̣ ὑφ᾽ ὑμῶν ἐπὶ τῇ κατὰ Βρετάννων νείκῃ χρυσοῦν σ ̣[τέ ]φ [α ]νον ἡδέως ἔλαβον (P Lond 1178.13 (=III. p. 216, Sections, P 99). Other examples are P Oxy II. 298.33 (ii/A.D.) ὁ Ἀνουβᾶς αὐ [τὸ ]ν οὐχ ἡδέως [β ]λέπει, ib. I. 113.30 (ii/A.D.) περὶ δὲ καὶ σὺ ὧν θέλεις δήλου μοι ἡδέως ποήσοντι, ib. III. 531.3 (ii/A.D.) ἡδέως σε ἀσπαζόμεθα πάντες οἱ ἐν οἴκωι, ib. IX. 1218.12 (iii/A.D.) καὶ οὓς ἡδέως ἔχομεν κατ᾽ ὄνομα, PSI III. 236.36 (iii/iv A.D.) ἀντίγραψόν μοι περὶ οὗ ̣ βούλει ἡδέως ἔχοντι. See also Preisigke 4317.10 (c. A.D. 200) ἐκ σοῦ ἡδέως ἔχω παρ᾽ ἐμοί, which Hauss oullier (Mélanges Chatelain, p. 283) renders ";j’en ai de l’agrément avec toi."; We may quote further the letter of Psenosiris for the same phrase as in P Oxy I. 113 (ut supra), P Grenf II. 73.20 (late iii/A.D.) (= Selections, p. 119) δ [ ]λω [σ ]ον [δέ ] μοι κ [αὶ σὺ ] περὶ ὧν θέλεις ἐνταῦθα ἡδέως ποιοῦντι, and another Christian letter P Oxy VIII. 1162.11 (iv/A.D.) δι᾽ οὗ ὑμᾶς καὶ τοὺς σὺν ὑμῖν ἐγώ δὲ καὶ οἱ σὺν ἐμοὶ ἡδέως ὑμᾶς προσαγορεύεσθαι κ (υρί).
