Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For . of place, as in all its NT occurrences, cf. P Tebt II. 316ii. 22 (A.D. 99) οἰκοῦμεν δὲ ἐν τῷ ἔνπροσθι ̣ς ̣ (l. ἔμπροσθε) ναυάρχου, ";we live opposite the admiralty"; (Edd.), P Giss I. 99.16 (ii/iii A.D.) τὰ γράμματα ἐ ]ν στή [λαι ]ν δυοῖν [ ]μ ̣προσθε ̣ν ἱδρυμέ [ν ]αιν τοῦ [ν ]εώ, and the magical P Par 574.1229 (iii/A.D.) (= Selections, p. 113) βάλε ἔμπροσθεν αὐτοῦ κλῶνας ἐλαίας. The word is very common in the papyri with reference to time, e.g. P Petr II. 8 (1)A. .7 (c. B.C. 250) ἐν τοῖς ἔνπροσθεν χρόνοις, ib. 13 (1).8 (B.C. 258–3) καθὰ καὶ ἔνπροσθεν ἐγένετο, P Ryl II. 157.22 (A.D. 135) τῶν ἔμπροσθεν καὶ τῶν ἐπεσομένων χρόνων. Cf. Michel 978.3 (B.C. 281–0) ἔν τε τῶι ἔμπροσ [θε ]ν χρόνωι. MGr ἐμπρός, ()μπροστά.
