Vocabulary of the Greek NT

See s.v. μεθύσκω, and add P Hal 1.193. (mid. iii/B.C.) μεθύοντος ἀδικιῶν. ὅταν τις τῶν εἰς τὸ σῶ [μ ]α ἀδικηάτ [ων ] μεθύων ἢ νύκτωρ ἢ ἐν ἱερῶι ἢ ἐν ἀγορᾶι ἀδικήσηι, διπλασί [αν ] τὴν ζημίαν ἀποτεισάτω τῆς γεγραμμένης, and the temple scribbling at Abydos Preisigke 1079 Νικάνωρ ἥκω μεθ᾽ Ἡρακλέας [Δ ]ρυγχίτιδος μεθύων, where, however, we ought perhaps to read μεθ᾽ ὑῶν. See also the new Logion P Oxy I. 1.11 ff. λέγει Ἰ (ησοῦ)ς ἔ [σ ]την ἐν μέσῳ τοῦ κόσμου. . καὶ εὗρον πάντας μεθύοντας καὶ οὐδένα εὗρον δειψῶντα ἐν αὐτοῖς, and cf. Reitzenstein Poimandres, p. 240 f. and the passage quoted s.v. μέθη. Hesychius understands μεθύει in 1 Corinthians 11:21 as = πεπλήρωται, in view of the contrast with πεινᾷ : for this use of the verb cf. Hosea 14:8.
