Vocabulary of the Greek NT

P Lille I. 7.20 (iii/B.C.) ἀνενήνοχέν με εἰς τὸ. . . δεσμωτήριον, φάσκων εἶναί με κακοῦργον, P Hib I. 62.8 (B.C. 245) κακοῦργον τὸν τ [ὴν ] λείαν ποιήσαντα ἐπικαλεῖ Τνᾶς Ἁρνούφιος, P Fay 108.11 (c. A.D. 171) ἐπῆλθαν ἡμεῖν κακοῦργοί τινες, and P Amh II. 83.4 (iii/iv A.D.) where in connexion with a census certain irregularities are alleged οὐχ ὑπὸ τοῦ κηνσίτορος ἀλλ᾽ ὑπό τινων κακούργων. This last document shows also the verb—.10 κακουργῆσαι καὶ τολμῆσαι : cf. P Oxy XII. 1468.4 (c. A.D. 258) τοῖς κακουργεῖν προχείρως ἔχουσιν, ";those who are designing to commit crime,"; and .19 εὗρέν τι κακουργηθέν, ";she discovered that a crime had been committed."; For the subst. see ib. 1469.18 (A.D. 298) τῆς τοῦ βοηθοῦ τοῦ στρατηγοῦ κακουργίας καταφανοῦς οὔσης, ";the unfairness of the assistant of the strategus is evident"; (Edd.), P Oxy I. 71i. 10 (A.D. 303) ἐπειράθη μέν τινα κακουργίαν ἐπὶ ἀποστερέσι τῇ ἡμετέρᾳ ποιήσασθαι διὰ τὸ ἀγράμματόν με εἶναι, ";he attempted, owing to my being illiterate, to commit a fraud to my detriment"; (Edd.). In P Gen I. 31.17 (A.D. 145–6) the editor supplies κακούργημαἐάν σοι δόξῃ. . . πέρας ἐπιθεῖναι τοῖς κ [ακουργήμασι, remarking that the word is strong, but that it is a step-mother who speaks! The adj. ἀκακούργητος is used with reference to the delivery of cargo ";safe and sound"; in P Lond 948.8 (A.D. 236) (= III. 220) φορτία. . . σῶα καὶ ἀκακούργητα.
