A literary citation for this word may be given from the recently recovered Mimes of Herodas, iv. 74 οὐδ᾽ ἐρεῖς ";κεῖνος ὢ ̣νθρωπος ἒν μὲν εἶδεν, ἒν δ᾽ ἀπηρνήθη,"; where Nairn prefers to render ἀ. ";failed to see"; rather than ";was denied"; : cf. Mark 8:34 εἴ τις θέλει ὀπίσω μου ἐλθεῖν, ἀπαρνησάσθω ἑαυτόν, ";let him lose sight of himself and his own interests,"; as Grimm renders. But this involves a needless distinction from Mark 14:72, where the verb means ";disown.";
