BGU IV. 1015.11 f. (A.D. 222–3) λ [άχαν ]ον νέον νέον καθαρὸν ἄδο ̣λ ̣(ον) . [. . ]κακ [ον ] must have a passive sense ";undamaged."; So P Oxy I. 142.5 (A.D. 534), a similar formula. For . = ";simple"; rather than ";innocent"; in Romans 16:18, see the quotations from Wetstein recalled by Field Notes, p. 166.
