Vocabulary of the Greek NT

BGU II. 606.5 (A.D. 306) πρὸς ἀ ]πόθεσιν ἀχύρου. Syll 420.16 (iv/A.D. init.) τῇ ἀποθέσει τῶν στεφάνων, the ceremony of resigning a priesthood, the inauguration to which was παράληψις τοῦ στεφάνου (so Ed.). Ἀπόθετος occurs in a petition P Oxy I. 71ii. 19 (A.D. 303), but unfortunately the passage is much mutilated. With the idea of 2 Peter 1:14 we might compare σῶ ]μ᾽ ἀποδυσάμενος in Kaibel 403.5 (iv/v A.D., but not Christian).
