Vocabulary of the Greek NT

From meaning ";skilled,"; ";clever,"; σοφός came to be applied from Plato onwards to ";wise"; theoretically : cf. the calendar P Hib I. 27.20 (e.g. 301–240) where ἀνὴρ σοφὸς καὶ ἡμῶν χρείαν ἔχων, ";a wise man and a friend of mine"; expounds πᾶσαν τὴν ἀλήθειαν, ";the whole truth,"; and the sepulchral epigram PSI I. 17 III..1 f. (iii/A.D.?)—

Τόνδ᾽ ἐσορᾷς, ὦ ξεῖνε, τὸν ὄλβιον ἀνέρα κεῖνον

τ (ὸν) σοφὸν Εὐπρέ [π ]ιον καὶ βασιλεῦσι φίλον.

Immediately above σοφόν the words πάντων ἁψάμενον γεράων have been inserted. Σοφός appears to have been a favourite word in sepulchral inscrr. : cf. Preisigke 3990.3 (time of Constantine) δάκρυσον. . . τὸν σοφὸν ἐν Μούσαις, C. and B. ii. p. 761, No. 704.1 ἄνδρ ]α σοφὸν κε [δ ]νήν [τ᾽ ἄλ ]οχον τόδε σῆμα [κέ ]κευθεν : other exx. in SAM i. p. 31 n.4.

For the superlative in titles of address, see P Iand 16.4 (v/vi A.D.) τῷ σοφωτάτῳ ὑμῶν ἀδελφῷ (of an advocate), P Oxy I. 126.6 (A.D. 572) θυγάτηρ τ [οῦ σ ]οφωτάτου σχολαστικοῦ Ἰ [ω ]άννου, and ib. VIII. 1165.13 (vi/A.D.) δεσπό (τῃ) ἐμῷ τ () πά (ντων) λαμπρ (οτάτῳ) σοφ (ωτάτῳ) π (άσης) προσκ (υνήσεως) ἀξ (ίῳ).
