Vocabulary of the Greek NT

In P Goodsp Cairo 3.5 (iii/B.C.) (= Witkowski, 2 p. 47) ἔδο ]ξε ̣ [μο ]ι ν [ ]ν ̣ περὶ τοῦ ὁράματος διασαφῆσαί σοι, ὅπως εἰδῆις κτλ., ὁράματος refers apparently to a ";vision"; granted in sleep : cf. P Par 51.38 (B.C. 160) τὸ ὅραμα τοῦτο τεθή (= )αμαι of a ";vision"; in the temple of Serapis in Memphis, and Syll 760 (= .3 1128).3 καθ᾽ ὅραμα of a similarly granted vision of the goddess Isis ( ";quia deam per somnum viderat"; Ed.). We may add the fragment of an uncanonical gospel P Oxy X. 1224 Fr. 2 rectoii. 3 καὶ [παρεσταμέ ]νου Ἰη (σοῦ) [ ]ν ὁράμα [τι λέγει ] Τί ἀθ [υμ ]εῖς; where there is possibly a reference to a vision of encouragement granted to Peter after his Fall (see the editors’ introd.).
