Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For πρόγνωσις, ";foreknowledge,"; as in Acts 2:33, cf. the magical P Lond 121.294 (iii/A.D.) (= I. p. 94) εἰς πρόγνωσιν κρειώ (l. κριός), ";for foreknowledge Aries (the ram)."; In 1 Peter 1:2 Hort ad l. understands πρόγνωσις as ";fore-knowledge"; of a person not so much in himself, as in relation to a function : see also s.v. προγινώσκω. Προγνώστης occurs in P Lond 46.410 (iv/A.D.) (= I. p. 78) μοιρῶν προγνώστης.
