Vocabulary of the Greek NT

After the close of the fifth century εὐλαβέστατος is very common as a designation for various orders of the clergy (see s.v. εὐλάβεια), as in BGU I. 305.10 (A.D. 556) τοῦ εὐλαβεστάτου διακόνο (υ), and in P Giss I. 57.1 (vi/vii A.D.) ὁ εὐλαβέστατος Ἄπα Κόλλουθος ὁ πρεσβύτερος, where see the editor’s note. For the adv. we may cite P Par 12.10 (B.C. 157) εὐλαβῶς μου σχόντος, BGU IV. 1141.38 (B.C. 14) εὐλαβῶς ἔχων διὰ τὸ προε ̣γ ̣νωκέναι με περὶ τῶν δ ̣α ̣κ ̣τ ̣υ ̣λ ̣ι ̣δ ̣ι ̣ω ̣ν ̣, P Tebt II. 304.14 (A.D. 167–8) εὐλαβῶς ἔχων τὸν περὶ τοῦ θαναθανάτου (l. θανάτου) αὐτοῦ κιντυνων (l. κίνδυνον), ";being careful for the danger to his life"; (Edd.). The adj. in MGr retains the NT meaning ";pious.";
