Vocabulary of the Greek NT

Hort’s remark on James 1:27 that ";this is quite a late word, apparently not extant before NT"; must be corrected in view of the fact that it is found already in IG II. v. 1054 c..4 (Eleusis, c. B.C. 300), where it is applied to stones—ὑγιεῖς λευκοὺς ἀσπίλους : cf. also Symm. Job 15:15. For its use in the magic papyri see P Leid V viii. 11 ff. (as amended by Dieterich) ἐπίδος φοροῦντί μοι τήνδε τὴν δύναμιν ἐν παντὶ τόπῳ ἐν παντὶ χρόνῳ ἄπληκτον , ἀκαταπόνητον , ἄσπιλον ἀπὸ παντὸς κινδύνου τηρηθῆναι , ib. W ix. 26 f. θῦε δὲ λυκὸν (l. λευκὸν ) ἀλέκτορα , ἄσπελλον (l. ἄσπιλον ). A decon’s litany of viii/ix A.D., P Grenf II. 113, commemorating the Virgin, is headed—[Περὶ τῆ ]ς πρεσβείας καὶ ἱκετείας τῆς ἀσπίλου [δεσποίνης ] τῶν ἁπάντων .
