Vocabulary of the Greek NT

This word, which in Greek writers is regularly applied to cousins german whether on the father’s or on the mother’s side (see Lightfoot on Colossians 4:10), may be illustrated from P Lond 1164 (k).20 (A.D. 212) (= III. p. 167) το ̣, καταλειφθὲν ὑπὸ [το ]ῦ κατὰ πατέρα μου ἀνεψειοῦ Ἰσιδώρου and P Tebt II. 323.13 (A.D. 127) μετὰ κυρίου τοῦ ἑαυτῆς κ [α ]τὰ μητέρα ἀνεψιοῦ Ὀρσέως. Preisigke 176 (reign of M. Aurelius) has ἀνεψιὸς πρὸς πατρός and πρὸς μητρός. See also P Oxy I. 99.3, .18 (A.D. 55), P Fay 99.5 (A.D. 159), BGU II. 648.9 (A.D. 164 or 196), and from the inscriptions OGIS 544? (ii/A.D.), where, however, the editor notes, ";Graecos non distinguere fratres patrueles et consobrinos, sed utrosque aeque ἀνεψιούς appellare."; Phrynichus (ed. Lobeck) p. 306 praises ἀνεψιός as against the form ἐξάδελφος, which is found in the LXX (Tobit 1:22; Tobit 11:18) and in Christian writers. Both occur in MGr, ἀνιψιός for ";nephew,"; and ἐξάδερφος for ";cousin (male)."; The fem. ἀνεψιά may be cited from PSI 53.145 (A.D. 132–3) ἐπιγέγραμμαι [τῆς ἀν ]εψιᾶς μου κύριος. Ἀνεψιάδης, ";cousin’s son,"; occurs in Preisigke 176 (see above).
