P Par 47.23 ff. (c. B.C. 153) (= Selections, p. 23), a very grandiloquent but ill-spelt letter, will illustrate Luke 21:28 : οὐκ ἔστι ἀνακύψα (l. -κύψαι) πόποτε ἐν τῇ Τρικομίαι ὑπὸ τῆς αἰσχύνης, ";it is not possible ever to show face again in Tricomia for very shame."; It appears also in P Ryl I. 28.23 (iv/A.D.), on omens drawn from twitching—one sort portends that the man ";will suffer loss for a time and will emerge again from his troubles"; (Ed.—ἐκ τῶν κακῶν ἀνακύψει).
