Vocabulary of the Greek NT

Grimm’s entry (";Besides only in Hesychius";) would suggest that this compd. in Revelation 12:15 = ";carried away by a stream"; was coined by John; but it occurs as early as B.C. 110 in BGU VI. 1216.98, al. : cf. P Amh II. 85.16 (A.D. 78) ἐὰν δέ τι ἄβροχος γένηται ἠ ̣ καὶ ποταμοφόρητος ᾒ υ ̣̓́φα ̣μ ̣μ ̣ος, ";if any part of the land becomes unwatered or is carried off by the river or covered by sand"; (Edd.), also in P Tebt II. 610 (ii/A.D.), P Ryl II. 378.2 (ii/A.D.), and P Strass I. 5.10 (as read Berichtigungen, p. 404—A.D. 262) τῆς γῆς ταύτης [πο ]ταμοφορήτου γενομέν [ης.
