Vocabulary of the Greek NT

It seems impossible to draw any clear distinction between μεθύσκω and μεθύω : in 1 Thessalonians 5:7, e.g., they are virtually synonymous. But the idea of status (as distinguished from actus), which belongs more naturally to the latter, comes out well in the recipe of the magical papyrus P Lond 121.180 (iii/A.D.) (= I. p. 90) enabling a man πολλὰ πίνειν καὶ μὴ μεθύειν. For μεθύσκω cf. Kaibel 646.11 f. (not before iii/iv A.D.)—

ζῶντί μοι, εἴ τι ἔχεις, μεταδός, τέφραν δὲ μεθύσκων

πῆλον ποιήσεις καὶ οὐκ ὁ θανὼν πίεται.
