Vocabulary of the Greek NT

OGIS 665.16 (A.D. 48–9) ὑπὸ τῶν πλεονεκτικῶς καὶ ἀναιδῶς ταῖς ἐξουσίαις ἀποχρωμένων associates the original adj. from which ἀναίδεια comes with another which well illustrates its connotation—audacious ";desire to get"; : cf. Luke 11:8 and for a slightly different connotation Sirach 25:22. In P Lond 342.14 (A.D. 185) (= II. p. 174) the adj. is used of a man who proves himself ἀναιδὴς ἐν τῇ κώμῃ by levying contributions on the inhabitants etc.; and for the verb see P Ryl II. 1421.19 (A.D. 37) ἀναιδευόμενοι μὴ ἀποδῶναι, ";shamelessly refusing to pay"; (Edd.).
