The sense of wanton insult or contumely underlying this verb (cf. 1 Thessalonians 2:2 with Milligan’s note) is well brought out by P Tebt I. 16.7 (B.C. 1 14) ὡς ἦν ὑβρισμένος οὐ μετ [ρίως ] ὑπὸ Ἀπολλοδώρου, ";how he was grossly insulted by Apollodorus"; (Edd.), P Oxy II. 281.17 (A.D. 20–50) οὐ διέλειπεν κακουχῶν με καὶ ὐβρί [ζ ]ων καὶ τὰς χεῖρας ἐπιφέρων, ";continually ill-treated and insulted me, using violence towards me"; (Edd.)—a wife’s complaint against her husband, P Oxy VIII. 1120.6 (early iii/A.D.) a petition by a ";feeble widow woman"; (γυνὴ χήρα καὶ ἀσθενής) against a man who had committed an outrage on her son-in-law—κατὰ τοῦ ὑβρίσαντος αὐτὸν Εὐδαίμονος, ib. XII. 1405.12 (iii/A.D.) a rescript of Severus guaranteeing the recipient against both loss of status and corporal punishment—ἡ δὲ ἐπιτειμία σου ἐκ τούτου οὐδὲν βλαβήσεται, οὐδὲ εἰς τὸ σῶμα ὑβρεισθήσει, ";your citizenship, however, will in no way be injured thereby, nor will you be subjected to corporal punishment"; (Edd.), Preisigke 4317.25 (c.
