Vocabulary of the Greek NT

εὐχάριστος is applied to the ";beneficent"; gods in P Par 29.13 (B.C. 161–0) δι᾽ ὑμᾶς τοὺς εὐχαρίστους θεούς, and in P Lond 879.11 (B.C. 123) (= III. p. 7) is an epithet of Ptolemy Euergetes II.—Πτολεμαίου θεοῦ Εὐεργέτου καὶ Σωτῆρος ἑαυτῶν Εὐχαρίστου : similarly of Ptolemy V. in OGIS 90.5 (the Rosetta stone—B.C. 196), where see the editor’s note. Like the subst., it is very common in the inscrr. to denote the ";gratitude"; of the people to their benefactors, as Priene 103.8 (c. B.C. 100) γεν ]όμενος ὁ δῆμος εὐχάριστος. The way was thus prepared for the Christian use as in Colossians 3:15 : see further s.v. εὐχαριστία.
