In P Oxy I. 71ii. 3 (A.D. 303) a Prefect is praised as rendering to all their due—πᾶσι τὰ ἴ [δ ]ια ἀπονέμις : cf. ib. IX. 1185.6 (c. A.D. 200) τ ̣ὰς περὶ τῶν γυμνασιαρχιῶν καὶ ἀγορανομιῶν ἐφέσις τοῖς κρατίστοις ἐπιστρατήγοις ἀπένειμα, the ";assigning"; of appeals to the strategi. See also OGIS 90.19 (Rosetta stone, B.C. 196) τὸ δίκαιον πᾶσιν ἀπένειμεν, ib. 116.19 (ii/B.C.) ἐπ᾽αὐταῖς τὰς ἀξίας ] χάριτας ἀπονέμοντες [ἀεὶ τοῖς εὐεργετήσασιν ], and Syll 325.33 (i/B.C.) βουλόμενος τὰς τῆς εὐσεβε [ ]ας χάριτας τοῖς θεοῖς ἀπονέμειν, which come near the use in 1 Peter 3:7.
