Vocabulary of the Greek NT

An interesting ex. of this verb, which is alway used of prayer to the gods or to God, is afforded by P Cairo Zen 59034 (B.C. 257). A certain Zoilos had been ordered by the god Sarapis to inform a high State official Apollonios that a temple should be erected to him, Zoilo neglected the charge and in consequence was thrown into a serious illness—.9 f. εἰς ἀ ̣ρ ̣ρ ̣ω ̣σ ̣[τ ]ι ̣α ̣[ν ] μ ̣[ε πε ]ρ ̣ι ̣ε ̣β ̣α ̣λεν μεγάλην ὥστε καὶ κινδυνεῦσα ̣ι ̣ [με. But on praying to the god and promising to do his bidding he was healed—.10 ff. π ̣ρ ̣ο ̣σευξάμενος δ [ ] αὐ [τῶι, ]α ̣[μ με ] ὑγιάσηι, διότι ὑπομενῶ τὴν ληιτο [υρ ]γ ̣ίαν καὶ ποιη ̣[σει ]ν τ ̣ο ̣̣ ὑφ᾽ αὑτοῦ προστασσόμενον (supply ὑγιάσθην). [An important commentary on the whole letter is supplied by Deissmann Exp. VIII. xxiv. p. 420 ff.]. Cf. Preisigke 3740 (i/A.D.) Ἄττηος προσεύχετα [ι ] τοῖς <ἐν > Ἀβύτο <<ν >> θεοῖς, ἵνα υγιαινῃ. See also s.v. εὔχομαι.
