Vocabulary of the Greek NT

πότος occurs in 1 Peter 4:3 = ";a drinking bout"; : cf. the meaning ";banquet"; in Genesis 19:3 al. and Aristeas 262. For the corresponding adj. used as a subst. in a more general sense, see PSI I. 64.21 (i/B.C.?), where a woman comes under a solemn promise not to administer philtres to her husband, nor to put anything hurtful μήτε ἐν ποτοῖς μήτε ἐν βρωτοῖς. Cf. also P Oxy XIV. 1673.12 (ii/A.D.) ἐκ δὲ τῶν ἐνκλισθέντων εὖρον ἐκ [τ ]ῆς α ̄ λη (νοῦ) ποτὴ (ν) α ̄, ";of what was stored I found of the first vat 1 drinkable"; (Edd.).
