Vocabulary of the Greek NT

With the use of this word in Acts 26:3 we may compare Deissmann’s restoration in a papyrus letter preserved at Berlin, in which an Egyptian official calls for a procession to to be arranged for the gods—ἐπεὶ γν [ ]στ [ης ἐγενόμην τοῦ ] εὐανγελ [ίο ]υ περὶ τοῦ ἀνηγορεῦσθαι Καίσαρα (= Preisigke 421), ";forasmuch as I have become aware of the tidings of joy concerning the proclaiming as Emperor"; of C. Julius Verus Maximus : see LAE, p. 371. For γνώστης = ";a surety"; (Lat. cognitor), as in Plutarch, we may cite P Lips I. 106.10 (A.D. 98) ἐὰν οὖν ὅ γ ̣γε γνώσ ̣της σὺν τῷ μετόχῳ ἀσφαλίζηταί σε κτλ . For the collateral noun γνωστήρ , which also answers to cognitor, see under γνωρίζω , and Wilcken’s note in Archiv iv. p. 442, where he reads P Flor I. 57.80 (A.D. 223–5) γν ̣[ωσ ]τευ [όμε ]νος ὑπὸ ἀδελφοῦ Πανίσκου , and compares γνωστῆρες in BGU IV. 1032.11 ff. The document is reprinted in P Flor III. 382. The verb γνωστεύω occurs 1..85 of the same document, and in P Hawara 69 recto.8 (i/ii A.D.) (in Archiv v. p. 383). The subst. γνωστεία in P Fay 65.5 (ii/A.D.) apparently = ";authorisation,"; ";supervision.";
