Vocabulary of the Greek NT

See Index to Syll III. p. 206, which shows how the old form and the later ἀνάθεμα (like ἀνάδημα and ἀνάδεμα, etc.) lived on side by side. In his index to OGIS Dittenberger is content with ";ἀνάθημα, ἀναθήματα passim."; That the alternative lived on in Semitic districts as well as in Greece itself, in the same sense, is well shown in a trilingual inscr.—Latin, Greek and Punic—in G. A. Cooke’s North Semitic Inscriptions, p. 109 (ii/B.C.), Ἀσκληπιῷ Μηρρὴ ἀνάθεμα βωμὸν ἔστησε Κλέων. This answers to donum dedit in the Latin, נדר in the Punic.
