Vocabulary of the Greek NT

An interesting example of this word occurs in the fragment of the Gnostic Gospel from the beginning of iv/A.D., P Oxy VIII. 1081.14 ff., where in contrast to the perishing of everything born of corruption (ἀπὸ φθορᾶς ) we find τὸ ] δ ̣ὲ γε [ι ]νόμεν [ον ἀπὸ ] ἀφ [θ ]αρσίας [οὐκ ἀπο ]γείν [εται ] ἀλλ [ὰ μ ]έν [ει ] ἄφ [θαρ ]τον ὡς ἀπὸ ἀ [φ ]θ [αρσία ]ς ̣ γ ̣εγονός . It is also quoted from Epicurus (60.8) τὴν μετὰ ἀφθαρσίας μακαριότητα : see Linde, p. 43, where other literary parallels are noted.
