Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For ῥᾳδιουργία in the general sense of ";false pretences,"; cf. P Oxy II. 237viii. 15 (A.D. 186) εἴτε πλαστῶν γραμμάτων ἤ ῥᾳδιουργίας ἢ περιγραφῆς ἐνκαλεῖν, ";to make a charge either of forgery or false pretences or fraud"; (Edd.) (but see Archiv i. p. 182) : cf. the wider usage in P Tor I. 1vi. 3 (B.C. 116) (= Chrest. II. p. 36) κακοτρόπως καὶ ἐπὶ ῥαιδιουρ ̣γίαι παρακεῖσθαι αὐτὸν τὴν συνχώρησιν, Preisigke 5656.12 (A.D. 568) χωρὶς ῥαδιουργ ̣ίας κα ̣ι ̣̣ ἀταξίας, and P Strass I. 40.30 (A.D. 569) δίχα παντοίας μέμψεως καὶ καταγνώσεως καὶ ῥαδιουργίας. The special meaning of ";theft"; is seen in P Magd 35.11 (B.C. 216) (= Mél. Nicole p. 454) περὶ δὲ τῆς ῥαιδιουργίας with reference to the theft of a mantle, and in BGU I. 226.14 (A.D. 99).

For the verb see P Tebt I. 42.16 (c. B.C. 114) (= Chrest. I. p. 385) ῥαδιουργημένας (for form cf. Mayser Gr, pp. 120, 408), and P Flor III. 294.55 (vi/A.D.) ῥᾳδιουργῆσαι, and for the adj. ῥαδιουργός see P Lond IV. 1338.29 (A.D. 709), 1349.37 (A.D. 710).
