Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The phrase ἀπὸ προγόνων, ";from one’s forefathers,"; as in 2 Timothy 1:3, is common in the inscrr., e.g. OGIS 485.3 (i/A.D.) ἄνδρα. . . ἀπὸ προγόνων εὐσχήμονα καὶ ἤθει καὶ ἀγωγῇ κόσμιον, ib. 529.1 (A.D. 117–138) ἀπό τε τῶν [προ ]γόνων διασημότατον κα [ὶ ἀ ]πὸ τῶν ἰδίων αὐτοῦ φιλοτειμιῶν λαμπρότατον : cf. P Tor I. 1vii. 18 (B.C. 117–6) τῶν προγόνων προστάγματα περὶ τῶν κεκρατηκότων.

Πρόγονοι is used of living parents, as in 1 Timothy 5:4, in Plato Legg. xi. 931 E. In P Fay 48i. 3 and ii. 3 the editors, following Wilcken, now understand πρόγο (νος) = ";stepson"; see P Oxy IV. p. 263 and Archiv i. p. 552.
