Vocabulary of the Greek NT

In P Oxy II. 281.12 (A.D. 20–50), a petition to the ἀρχιδικαστής, a woman who had been deserted by her husband claims—παντελῶς ὄντα ἀνέγκλητον ἐματὴν ἐν ἁπᾶσει παρειχόμην, ";I for my part conducted myself blamelessly in all respects"; (Edd.) : cf. Syll 429.14 (iii/B.C.) ἀνένκλητον ἑαυτὸν παρεσχηκὼς πρὸς πάντας τοὺς φυλέτας. For the adverb see P Magd 15.3 (B.C. 221), where a barber states that he has been wronged by one of his clients, notwithstanding that he has treated him in an irreproachable manner—τεθεραπευκὼς ἀνεγκλή [τως ]. A wider sense is found Syll 925.16 (B.C. 207–6) τοὺς στρατιώτας εὐτάκτους παρεσκεύαξαν καὶ ἀνενκλήτους, and ib. 540.163 (B.C. 175–1), where the epithet is applied to stones. Bp E. L. Hicks in CR i. (1887) p. 65, citing a Prienean inscr. to illustrate another word, observed that . was a common word in Greek decrees : the phrase in this one was ἐπῄνεσεν ἐπί τε τῷ σωφρόνως καὶ ἀνεγκλήτως παρεπιδημῆσαι. Prof. Calder has an inscr. (no. 8) in which a son commemorates his mother in the forms of public honorific monuments—using ἐπειδή, ἔδοξε, etc. : he says τήν τε [οἰκί ]αν κυβερνήσασα ἀνενκλήτως καὶ τὸ παιδίον ἐκθρέψασα. It is from the southern cemetery at Karabunar (Hyde). Other instances are needless.
