Vocabulary of the Greek NT

As an antithesis to ";mortal,"; the term is well seen in Syll 365.10 (c. A.D. 37) θεῶν δὲ χάριτες τούτῳ διαφέρουσιν ἀνθρωπίνων διαδοχῶν , ᾧ ἢ νυκτὸς ἥλιος καὶ (for ) τὸ ἄφθαρτον θνητῆς φύσεως . OGIS 569.24 (A.D. 312) ὑπὲρ ] τῆς αἰωνίου καὶ ἀφθάρτου βασιλείας ὑμῶν , with reference to the Imperial rule. The adj. occurs ter in the magic papyrus P Lond 121 (iii/A.D.) (= I. p. 83 ff.) : see also P Leid Wxx. 37 οὐρανὸν μέγαν ἀένναον ἄφθαρτον . Cf. s.v. ἀφθαρσία . The record hardly proves a vernacular currency.
