Vocabulary of the Greek NT

With Matthew 3:11 cf. P Leid Wv. 33 (ii/iii A.D.) ἰδὼν ὁ θεὸς πάλιν ἐπτοήθη, ὡς ἰσχυρότερον θεωρήσας (viz. ἔνοπλόν τινα, who appears suddenly on his πόππυσμα) μήποτε ἡ γῆ ἐξέβρασε θεόν. In P Ryl II. 165.12 (A.D. 266) we have a reference to the legio Tratana Fortis Germanicaλεγιῶνος Τραιανῆς Ἰσχυρᾶς Γερμ [ανικῆς. Syll 226.59 (iii/B.C.) σιτοδείας γενομένης ἰσχυρᾶς, is a good parallel to the usage in Luke 15:14. Cf. also ib. 929.84 (ii/B.C.) τὸ δὲ πάντων μέγιστον καὶ ἰσχυρότατον τεκμήριον, Ckrest. I. 27.5 (ii/A.D.) ε [ἰ γὰ ]ρ ὑπεναντίον ἐστὶν τὸ πα [ρά ]δειγμα οὐκ ἰσχυρόν κτλ., and Menandrea p. 14.130 τοῦτο γὰρ | ἰσχυρὸν οἴεταί τι πρὸς τὸ πρᾶγμ᾽ ἔχειν, ";un argument decisif"; (Croiset).
