Vocabulary of the Greek NT

That ancient scribes were almost capable of sympathy with modern school-boys in writing the augmented forms of this intractable verb is shown by frequent misspellings in late papyri : thus PSI II. 132.9 (iii/A.D.) ἀνῷχθαι. From Ptolemaic papyri we have the regular forms ἠνώιξαμεν P Petr II. 37 1 a.12, and ἀνεωιγμένον ib. 2 a. 5, also ἀνοῖξαι ib. III. p. 133. The phrase of Matthew 2:11 is nearly paralleled in Syll 601.32 (iii/B.C.) ἀνοιγόντων δὲ οἱ ἐξετασταὶ κατ᾽ ἐνιαυτὴν (l. -τὸν) τὸν θησαυρόν : so ib. 653.93 (the Andania ";Mysteries"; inscr., in dialect—B.C. 91), 587.302 (B.C. 329–8) τῶι τοὺς θησαυροὺς ἀνοίξαντι. That of Revelation 5:9 etc. occurs in Syll 790.47 (i/A.D.) τὰς σφραγῖδας ἀνοιξάτω. Close to this is its use for the ";opening"; of a will, as P Ryl II. 109.9 (A.D. 235—a stilted document with δυεῖν and υἱέας !) ἐκ διαθήκης τῆς καὶ ἀνοιχθε [ίσ ]η ̣ς κατὰ τὸ ἔθος. We may quote OGIS 222.36 (B.C. 266–1) ἀνοῖξαι δ [ ] τοὺς ἱερεῖς καὶ τὰς ἱερείας τὰ ἱερά, cf. 332.28 (B.C. 138–2) . τοὺς ναούς, and Dittenberger’s note, with parallels showing that the solemn ";opening"; of shrines was a conspicuous feature in ritual—cf. 1 Regn 3:15 [MT 1 Samuel 3:15] καὶ ὤρθρισεν τὸ πρωὶ καὶ ἤνοιξεν τὰς θύρας οἴκου Κυρίου, and Revelation 11:19; Revelation 15:5. Something akin to our ";opening"; a building may be seen in OGIS 529.11 (A.D. 117–38) πρῶτον μὲν ἀνοίξαντα τὸ γυμνάσιον —he had evidently been prime mover in its establishment. The Neoplatonists appropriated the NT phrase ";heavens opened"; : cf. Kaibel 882 (Athens—c. iii/A.D.) Θειολόγου Λαίτοιο μετάρσιον ὕμνον ἀκούσας οὐρανὸν ἀνθρώποις εἶδον ἀνοιγόμενον. Laetus, a contemporary of Plotinus (Ed.), is acclaimed as a reincarnation of Plato. The word is common on later tombstones for violating a grave. The frequency of the spelling ἀνύγω has been thought to go rather beyond the mere blundering substitution of an identically pronounced symbol : Radermacher (Gr. p 35 n..2) would attribute it to the influence of ἀνύω, which is however a decidedly rarer word (not in NT). But Prof. Thumb regards it as purely graphic. We may quote two illiterate papyri of ii/B.C., written by the same hand, P Par 51.7 (= Selections p. 19) and 50.7 : see Mayser Gr., p. 110. So also P Tebt II. 383.29 (A.D. 46) (the entrance and the exit) εἰς ἣν καὶ ἀνύξι ἑαυτῇ. . . . θύραν. The late 2 aor. pass, ἠνοίγην (as Mark 7:35, Acts 12:10 etc.) is illustrated by BCU I. 326ii. 10 (as amended p. 359) (A.D. 194) ἠνύγη [κ ]α ̣ι ̣̣ ἀνεγνώσθη —of a will : cf. also the amended reading in l. 21 ἠνύγησαν. The verb is MGr.
