Vocabulary of the Greek NT

";very large,"; plur. ";very many,"; is generally elative in the papyri, e.g. P Petr III. 53 (o).5 (iii/B.C.) θ ]εῶι πλεί [στ ]η χάρις, P Tebt I. 45.17 (B.C. 113) σὺν ἄλλοις πλείστοις, ";with very many others,"; and P Oxy VI. 939.3 (iv/A.D.) (= Selections, p. 128) ὡς ἐν ἄλ ]λ ̣οις πλείστοις, νῦν ἔτι μᾶλλον, ";as on very many other occasions, so now still more."; But for the genuine superlative sense we may cite such exx. as P Tebt I, 105.46 (B.C. 103) τὴν ἐσομένην πλείστην τιμὴν ἐν τῆι αὐτῆι κώμηι, ";the highest price at which it may be sold at the said village"; (Edd.), and P Fay 90.17 (A.D. 234) τὴν ἐπὶ τοῦ καιροῦ ἐσο (μένην) πλ [ ]στην τει (μήν), ";the highest current price at the time being"; (Edd.).

The word is common in greetings, e.g. P Oxy III. 533.1 (ii/iii A.D.) Ἀπίων Ἀπίωνι τῶι υἱῷ καὶ Ὡρίωνι τῶι φιλτάτῳ πλεῖστα χαίρειν, and intensified BGU III. 845.1 (ii/A.D.) . . ]ρεῖνος τῇ μητρὶ πλεῖστα πολλὰ χαίρι (= ει)ν. For τὰ πλεῖστα see P Tebt I. 22.5 (B.C. 112) διὰ σὲ τὰ πλεῖστα συνκάταινος ἐγενόμην, ";for your sake I came to an agreement on most points"; (Edd.), P Fay 35.12 (A.D. 150–1) Μύσ ̣της ἔγραψα τὰ πλεῖστα, ";written for the most part by me, Mystes"; : cf. also Preisigke 8.7 (ii/A.D.) ἐδήλ (ωσεν) τοὺς. . . ἄνδρας ἐκ το [ ] πλείστου (cf. 1 Corinthians 14:27) ἐγλελοιπέναι. Πλειστάκι, ";repeatedly,"; occurs in P Ryl II. 130.12 (A.D. 31).
