Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The disputed meaning ";opposition"; in act (see Thayer) finds fresh confirmation in P Petr II. 17 (3).7 (iii/B.C.) where ἀντιλογίαν γενομένην Ἀτταλῶι refers to an ";assault."; The word is fairly common, meaning ";quarrel,"; as P Grenf I. 38.8 (ii/iB.C.) ἀντιλογίαν πρός με συνστησάμενος, P Ryl II, 68.10 (B.C. 89) ἐμπεσοῦσα ] ἐξ ἀντιλο [γ ]ίας ἐ ̣[πληξέν ] με, ";attacking me in consequence of a dispute"; (Edd.), and P Tebt I. 138 (late ii/B.C.). So in the formula ἄνευ (χωρὶς) πάσης ἀντιλογίας, ";without dispute,"; in formal promises to pay money, etc. : BGU IV. 1133.15 (Aug.), P Strass I. 75.10 (A.D. 118), P Lond 310.16 (A.D. 146) (= II. p. 208) (ἀντιλογίας γεινομένης), Wilcken Ostr 1151 (iii/A.D.), P Flor I. 43.14 (A.D. 370) and ib. 94.13 (A.D. 491). Cf, Syll 929.115 (ii/B.C.) ὑπ᾽ οὐδενὸς ἀντιλογίας, ib. 334.4, .32 (i/B.C.).
