Vocabulary of the Greek NT

Syll 656.2 (ii/A.D.) presents Gaius Papillius Carus Pedo ἀνθύπατος replying to a resolution of the Ephesian Βουλή, who had referred him to his predecessors’ practice (τοὺς πρὸ ἐμ [οῦ ] κρατίστους ἀνθυπάτονς). Ib. 316.8 (ii/B.C.) has Q. Fabius Q. f. Maximus, ἀνθύπατος Ῥωμαίων, addressing the authorities of a town in Achaia. So passim, except in Egypt : since this country was governed by a prefect, we do not hear of proconsuls in the papyri.
