Vocabulary of the Greek NT

In P Tebt I. 44.17 (B.C. 114), a petition concerning a violent assault, the complaint is made that the aggressor ἕως [μέν τ ]ινος ἐλοιδ [όρησέν με ] καὶ ἀσχημο [νεῖ ] ὕστερον δὲ ἐπιπηδήσας ἔδωκεν πληγὰς πλείους ἧι [ε ]ἶχεν ῥάβδωι , where foul language at least is suggested. (Is ἀσχημόνει an unaugmented imperfect? The present is rather oddly sandwiched between two aorists, unless we are to call in the help of parallels noted Proleg. p. 121.) In the great Mysteries inscription from Andania Syll 653.4 (B.C. 91), the candidate has to swear μήτε αὐ [τ ]ὸς μηθὲν ἄσχημον μηδὲ ἄδικον ποιήσειν ἐπὶ καταλύσει τῶς μυστηρίων μήτε ἄλλωι ἐπιτρέψειν : in this case anything irreverent or improper would be included. Perhaps ";behave dishonourably"; is the meaning in 1 Corinthians 7:36, but the word seems to take the colour of its context. We find it in antithesis with εὐσχημονεῖν in the pompous but ungrammatical letter (a begging letter?), P Par 63ix. 38 f. (B.C. 165) παρὰ τὴν περιοῦσαν ἀγωγὴν ἀσχημωνοῦντα προσδεῖσθαι τῆς παρ᾽ ἑτέρων ἐπεικουρείας , ";since I cannot meet the conditions of life creditably I need external assitance"; : in the next sentence, after a fresh start, ὁρμῶμεν ἀπὸ βραχείων μόλεις εὐσχημονεῖν .
