Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The perfect of this verb, which in the NT is confined to John 6:13 (τοίς βεβρωκόσιν ), occurs in medical receipts P Ryl I. 29 (a).49 (ii/A.D.) βεβ [ρω ]μένους κανθούς . Cf. the verbal adj. in PSI I. 64.21 (? i/B.C.) μήτε ἐν ποτοῖς μήτε ἐν βρωτοῖς , and in OGIS 629.159 (A.D. 137) For compounds see P Petr II. 4 (8).5 (B.C. 255–4) καταβεβρωκέναι , P Grenf II. 36.15 (B.C. 95) ἠκούσαμεν τὸν μῦν καταβεβρωκέναι τὸν σπόρον , ";we hear that mice have eaten up the crop"; (Edd.), and P Par 6.21 (i/B.C.) περ ]ιβρωθέντα , ";devoured in part."; On its record in classical Greek and LXX see Anz Subsidia, p. 268. Grimm’s grave record of an ";unused present βρώσκω whence pf. βέβρωκα "; stands among many philological freaks in a fine work.
