Vocabulary of the Greek NT

With this NT ἅπ. εἰρ. (2 Corinthians 11:25), which is found elsewhere only in late writers (cf. Sturz Dial. Mac. p. 186), we may compare the new νυκτῆμαρ in the Christian letter, addressed perhaps to a Bishop, P Lond 981.12 (iv/A.D.) (=111. p. 242, Chrest. I. p. 157) περιοδεύομεν καὶ περιπατοῦμεν νυκτῆμαρ, θαρροῦμεν ταῖς προσευχαῖς σου.
