Vocabulary of the Greek NT

In the extraordinary interview with an Emperor, perhaps Commodus (P Oxy II. p. 319), the Emperor is represented as saying to a certain Appianus, who had addressed him in insulting language, ἰώθαμεν καὶ ἡμεῖς μαινομένους καὶ ἀπονενοημένους σωφρι (= ο)νίζειν, ";we too are accustomed to bring to their senses those who are mad or beside themselves"; (Edd.) (P Oxy I. 33 verso iv. 11—late ii/A.D.) : cf. Titus 2:4, where, however, the RV understands the verb in the general sense of ";train.";
