Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The phrase κατ᾽ ὄναρ which is found for the Attic ὄναρ sexies in Mt, is condemned by Photius (Lex. p. 149, 25 f.) as βάρβαρον παντελῶς : cf. Lob. Phryn. p. 422 ff. It occurs not infrequently in votive inscrr. but with the meaning ";in consequence of a dream,"; and not ";in a dream,"; e.g. Syll 780 (=.3 1147).5 (ii/iii A.D.) Οὔλπιοι Νείκανδρος καὶ Σωτήριος Ὑγείᾳ Σωτ [εί ]ρῃ Συνοδοι [πόρ ]ῳ κατ᾽ ὄναρ : see also Deissmann BS, p. 253. A new literary ex. of the word occurs in Herodas i. 11 οὐδ᾽ ὄναρ : cf. Cic. ad Att. i. 18. 6.
