Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For this subst. we can cite only one ex. from the papyri, P Lond 1178.25 (A.D. 194) (= III. p. 216) τῆς πρὸς αὐτοὺς εὐχαριστίας, in the copy of a letter written by the Emperor Claudius to a Gymnastic Club expressing his gratification at games performed in his honour. It is, however, common in the inscrr., e.g. OGIS 227.6 (iii/B.C.) διὰ τὴν τοῦ δήμου εὐχαριστίαν Syll 365..5 (c. A.D. 37) εἰς εὐχαριστίαν τηλικούτου θεοῦ εὑρεῖν ἴσας ἀμοιβάς, and OGIS 199.31 (i/A.D.) δι᾽ ἣν ἔχω πρὸς τὸν μέγιστον θεόν μου Ἄρην εὐχαριστίαν, where the editor notes that εὐχαριστία = τὸ εὐχάριστον εἶναι, and that as the adj. denotes ";non modo grati animi hominem . . sed etiam gratiosum, acceptum,"; the meaning almost amounts to ";quia deus mihi favet."; On the Christian use of εὐχαριστία with the corresponding verb see a note by Hort in JTS iii. p. 594 ff. In JHS xxvii. p. 65 we hear of a εὐχαριστήριον to Dionysus. MGr εὐκαρίστησι, ";contentment,"; ";pleasure.";
