Vocabulary of the Greek NT

An interesting instance of this Petrine adj. is afforded by PSI I. 64.21 (i/B.C.?), where a woman promises her husband (?)—μηδὲ ποι [ ]σειν εἴς σε φάρμακα φίλτρα μηδὲ κακοποιὰ μήτε ἐν ποτοῖς μήτε ἐν βρωτοῖς : cf. especially 1 Peter 4:15 where the word probably means ";a sorcerer, magician, or poisoner"; (Souter Lex. s.v.). See also P Leid Wxxiv. 18 (ii/iii A.D.) ἐπιμαρτυροῦντος μηδενὸς κακοποιοῦ Κρόνου, ἢ Ἄρεως.
