Vocabulary of the Greek NT

In C. and B. ii. p. 653, No. 564, Sir W. M. Ramsay publishes a striking epitaph of A.D. 243–4 from Ushak in Phrygia, in which the following curse occurs—εἴ τις ἀνύξῃ τὸ μνημῖον, ἔσονται αὐτῷ κατάραι ὅσε ἀνγεγραμμένα [ι ἰ ]σὶν εἰς ὅρασιν καὶ εἰς ὅλον τὸ σῶμα αὐτῷ καὶ εἰς τέκνα καὶ εἰς βίον, ";if any one shall open the tomb, there shall be upon him the curses as many as are written in (the book), on his sight and his whole body and his children and his life."; In the curses here, and in similar epitaphs found in a number of towns scattered throughout central Phrygia, Ramsay finds distinct traces of ";Jewish influence,"; cf. especially Deuteronomy 27:1-26; Deuteronomy 28:1-68; Deuteronomy 29:1-29, and see further Exp Txxvi. p. 171 f. The subst. is also found in Syll 889.1 ἐπάρα κατάρα κακὴ τῷ ἀσεβήσαντι τοὺς δαίμονας.
