Vocabulary of the Greek NT

A good instance of this expressive word occurs in P Par 63ix. 35 (B.C. 165) in the clause preceding that quoted above under ἀσχημονέω : —ἄλλως τε δὴ τῆς πατρικῆς οἰκίας , ὥσπερ καὶ σὺ γινώσκεις , ἔτι ἔνπροσθεν ἄρδην [ ]νατετραμμένης δι᾽ ἀσ [ω ]τίας . It occurs after a hiatus in P Petr III. 21 (b).11 (B.C. 225). A somewhat weaker sense is found in P Fay 12.24 (c. B.C. 103), where it is used of men who had pawned a stolen garment πρὸς ἀσωτείαν ";incontinently."; For the corresponding verb see P Flor I. 99.7 (i/ii A.D.) (= Selections, p. 71), a public notice which his parents set up regarding a prodigal son who ἀσωτευόμενος ἐσπάνισε τὰ αὑτοῦ πάντα , ";by riotous living [cf. ἀσώτως , Luke 15:13] had squandered all his own property,"; and PSI 41.12 (iv/A.D.), where a wife lays a complaint against her husband for misuse of her property καὶ ἀσωδ [εύ ]ων καὶ πράττων [ἃ μὴ τοῖς ε ]ὐγενέσι πρέπι . The word survives in the written MGr.
