Vocabulary of the Greek NT

P Goodsp Cairo 2 i. 6 (a medical fragment—ii/A.D.) ὃ τῶν ὡραίων ἡμᾶς ἀποξενοῦντες ὡς βλαβερώτερον , ";who warn us against ripe fruits as being very harmful"; (Ed.). Syll 220.14 (iii/B.C.) τὴν πᾶσαν πρόνοιαν ἐποεῖτο τοῦ μηθὲν βλαβερὸν γίνεσθαι πε [ρ ]ὶ τὴν χώραν . The noun βλάβος may be cited from P Ryl II. 126.19 (A.D. 28–9) ἐξ οὗ βλάβος μοι ἐπηκλούθ (ησεν ) οὐκ ὀλίγον , P Oxy X. 1282.40 (A.D. 83) τό τε βλάβος καὶ ἐπίτειμον , ";the damages and a fine";, BGU II. 538.17 (A.D. 100) βλάβος μηιδὲν ποιῶν , and in the common formula τά τε βλάβη καὶ δαπανήματα , e.g. BGU III. 1001.13 (B.C. 56–5). Note the uncontracted plur. in P Tor II. 13.14 (B.C. 137), in this formula. Mayser (Gr. p. 287) quotes many other instances of the neuter, which he says stands alone in Ptolemaic times, except for P Par 15.37 (B.C. 120) εἰς βλάβας : add P Amh II. 33.19 (c. B.C. 157) ἐπὶ βλάβῃ τῶν προσόδων . So from later papyri, P Oxy III. 488.19 (ii/iii A.D.) οὐκ ὀλίγην βλάβην ὑπ ̣οφέρει με , BGU I. 72.12 (A.D. 191) οὗ χολικὴν βλάβην ἐπεκολούθησεν . Moeris (p. 103) makes βλάβος Attic, and βλάβη (which has driven its rival out by the end of iv/A.D.) Hellenistic. A literary quotation for the latter may be added from PSI II. 120.20 (? iv/A.D.—a collection of maxims) ἀμύνου τὸν ἐ [χθ ]ρὸν ἄνευ τῆς σεαυτοῦ βλάβη [ς . A glance at LS will dispose of the Atticist’s contention.
