Vocabulary of the Greek NT

In P Petr II. 13 (19).10 (B.C. 258–3) Kleon writes to his father begging him to come and visit him at the time of the falling of the river, καθ᾽ ὃν χρόνον οὐθείς ἐστιν κίνδυνος. Another pleasing family illustration is afforded by the letter of Dionysius to his brother Hephaestion, P Vat A (B.C. 168) (= Witkowski.2, p. 64 ff.), congratulating him on the news that he had been saved .7 ἐγ μεγάλων κινδύνων, and remind–ing him (Hephaestion was ἐν κατοχῆι at the time in the Serapeum) that every one when he has been so saved—.17 f. ὁπηνίκ᾽ ἂν ἐκ κινδύνων διασωθῆι, endeavours to come quickly and greet his wife and children and friends. We may contrast the menacing letter to a creditor, P Tebt II. 424 (late iii/A.D.), which ends–.7 ff. ὡς ἐὰ ̣ (l. ἐὰ ̣ν) μὴ ἀποκαταστ ̣ασίας [δ ]ὴ πέμψῃς [ο ]ἶδάς σου τὸ [ν ] κίνδυνον, ";so unless you now send discharges you know your danger"; (Edd.). For the phrase ἰδίῳ κινδύνῳ, ";at one’s own risk,"; see P Lond 356.4 (i/A.D.) (= II. p. 252, Selections, p. 59), P Oxy VII. 1024.19 (A.D. 129), and P Ryl II. 90.82 (early iii/A.D.) τῶν ἡμῶν κινδύνων (l. τῷ ἡμῶν κινδύνῳ), where the superfluous ν ἐφελκυστικόν should be noted (Moulton Gr. ii. p. II3). And see P Tebt I. 105.18 (B.C. 103), P Hamb I. 5.18 (A.D. 89) for ἀκίνδυνος παντὸς κινδύνου, ";warranted against all risks,"; a good example of the gen. of definition (Proleg. pp. 74, 235). MGr κίντυνος, κίδυνος.
