Vocabulary of the Greek NT

P Flor I. 368.3 (early iv/A.D.) crimes ὑφ᾽ οὐδενὸς ἄλλου ἀνακόπτεται, but by the punishment of the criminal; a similar connotation probably may be recognised in the fragmentary P Giss I. 87.10 (ii/A.D.) . .] παραγγέλλειν ἀνακοπῆναι [. ., from what the scanty context suggests. So also in P Théad 19.16 (iv/A.D.) δέομαι τῆς σῆς ἀρε [τῆ ]ς κελεῦσαι. . . τὴν παιδιὰν τῆς γυναικὸς ἀνακοπῆναι δι᾽ οὖ εὐδοκιμάσῃς. The word obviously does not encourage us to approve the few cursives that show it in Galatians 5:7.
