Vocabulary of the Greek NT

Deissmann (LAE, p. 321) gives a striking series of parallels to the vices enumerated in 1 Corinthians 6:9 f. from counters used in an ancient game : thus to μέθυσοι correspond on the counters ebriose and vinose. For μέθυσος applied to men, as in 1 Cor l.c., 5.11 (cf. Lob.Phryn. p. 151), see the exx. in Durham Menander, p. 77 f., and add P Oxy XV. 1828.3 (c. iii/A.D.), where πλεονέκτης also occurs (as in 1 Cor ll. c.).
