Like the adj., λαμπρότης is used as a title of honour, e.g. P Grenf I. 59.6 (v/vi A.D.) τὸ κτῆμα τῆς σῆς λαμπρότητος, BGU I. 306.8 (A.D. 566) ὁμολογῶ [μεμισθῶ ]σθαι παρὰ τῆς λ [α ]μπρότητος. Cf. also OGIS 470.8 (time of Augustus) where a certain Theophron is described as—ἐν τῇ [ ]σίᾳ καὶ πρὸς τὴν πατρίδα [λ ]αμπρότητα.
