Vocabulary of the Greek NT

P Oxy III. 471.4 (ii/A.D.) π ]ροσθήσω τι κύριε περ [ὶ οὗ ] θαυμάσεις οἶμαι καὶ ἀπι [στήσ ]εις ἕως ἂν τὰ γράμμ [ατα ἀνα ]γνῶν ̣μεν (with 2nd ν deleted and μεν written above), ";I will add a fact, my lord, which will, I expect excite your wonder and disbelief until we read the documents"; (Edd.). P Oxy II. 237v. 5 (A.D. 186) has τάχα ἀπιστεύσας εἰ κτλ. : here we must assume a momentary slip of spelling with πιστεύω in mind—of course ἀπιστεύω is an impossible word even in papyri. Syll 802.24 (dialect, iii/B.C.) ἀπίστει τοῖς ἰάμασιν καὶ ὑποδιέσυρε τὰ ἐπιγράμμα [τ ]α, said of a sceptic at the Asclepios temple in Epidaurus. So lines 30, 31. The appearance of the word for ";incredulity"; helps the case for ἀπειθέω as retaining its proper force.
