Vocabulary of the Greek NT

αὐτάρκεια occurs in P Oxy IV. 729.10 (A.D. 137) τὴν δὲ αὐτάρκιαν κόπρον περιστερῶν , ";guano, the necessary amount,"; P Flor II. 122.11 (A.D. 253–4) πάρεχε τ ̣ [ὀψώνιον ?] κατ᾽ αὐτά [ρκειαν ?, ib. 242.8 (same date) ἵνα δυνηθῇς ἔχειν τὴν αὐτάρκιαν ἔστ᾽ ἂν τὰ σὰ ἐν ἑτοίμῳ γένηται . It is thus only concrete, ";a sufficiency"; : see next article. Vettius Valens (p. 289.32) has the noun, apparently with the meaning ";a competence.";
