Vocabulary of the Greek NT

Herwerden cites from BCH xvi. p. 384, no. 81, a deed of manumission from Delphi in which the inhuman clause is inserted—εἰ δέ τι γένοιτο ἐγ Διοκλέας τέκνον ἐν τῶι τᾶς παραμονᾶς χρόνωι, εἴ κα μὲν θέληι ἀποπνεῖξαι, ἐξουσίαν ἔχειν. A literary citation may be added from the new fragments of Callimachus, P Oxy VII. 1011.299 f. (late iv/A.D.),

ὡς δὴ μἴ ἡμέων καὶ σὺ μή με ποιῆσαι

εὔστεκτον, ἦ γὰρ γειτονεῦς᾽ ἀποπνίγεις

which Prof. Hunt renders, ";Don’t you prescribe patience to me, as if you were one of us; your very presence chokes me.";
