Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The sense of ";fairness,"; ";fair dealing,"; into which this word passes in Colossians 4:1, may be illustrated by Menander Μονόστ. 259 ἰσότητα τίμα καὶ πλεονέκτει μηδένα. See also Vett. Val. p. 332.34 ἰσότητας ποιεῖν, and for the verb ἰσόω in its literal sense cf. P Oxy XIV. 1674.7 (iii/A.D.) καὶ ἰσοθήτω τὸ πᾶν τοῦ κεχωσμένου, ";and let the whole of the bank be levelled.";
