Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For the significance of visions granted in sleep (cf. Genesis 28:10 ff., 1 Kings 3:5 [MT 1 Samuel 3:5 ff.]), we may note the important PSI IV. 435.5 (B.C. 258–7) ( = Deissmann LAE2, p. 153), where a certain Zoilus writes to his friend and patron Apollonius—ἐμοὶ συ ̣μ ̣βέβηκεν θεραπεύοντι τὸν θεὸν Σάραπιν περὶ τῆς σῆς ὑγιείας. . . τὸν Σάραπίμ μο ̣ι ̣ χρημ ̣α [τίζει ]ν πλε [ον ]α ̣κ ̣[ι ]ς ἐν τοῖς ὕπνοις, ὅπως ἂν διαπλεύσω π ̣ρ ̣ο, ̣ς σὲ κα ̣̣ι, ἐμ ̣[φανίσω σοι τοῦτ ]ο ̣[ν ] τ ̣ο ̣, [ν ] χρηματισμόν, ";it happened to me, while serving the god Sarapis for thy health. . .that Sarapis warned me many a time in sleep that I should sail over to thee and signify to thee this answer"; : cf. P Par 45.6 (B.C. ) ( = Witkowski.2, p. 85, UPZ i. p. 329) ὁρῶ [[τον ]] ἐν τῷ ὕπνῳ τὸν δραπέδην Μενέδημον ἀντικείμενον ἡμῖν, P Lond 121.410 (iii/A.D.) ( = I. p. 97) εἰδέτω μοι. . . ἐν τοῖς ὕπνοις, a spell for making a person talk in his sleep. From the inscrr. we may cite OGIS 610.7 (vi/A.D.) from above the door of a church dedicated to S. George in Syria Γεωργίου. . . τοῦ φανέντος αὐτῷ Ἰωάννῃ οὐ καθ᾽ ὕπνον, ἀλλὰ φανερῶς.

In the private letter Preisigke 4317.3 (c. A.D. 200) the writer complains to his correspondent—ὕπνος οὐ [κ ] ἔρχεταί μοι διὰ νυκτὸς χάρειν τῆς σῆς <<σ >>απροεραίσει (l. ἀπροαιρέσεως, ";inconsidetateness";). For the metaph. use applied to death see the sepulchral inscr. Kaibel 433 (ii/A.D.) beginning—ὕπνος ἔχει σε, μάκαρ. The verb is seen in such passages as BGU IV. 1141.35 (B.C. 14) μή τις ἔξω υ ̣̓́πνωκε, and P Meyer 19.4 (ii/A.D.) (as read by Wilcken, Archiv vi. p. 407) ὕπνωσ ̣α εἰς Χῦσιν ( = ἐν Χύσει, name of a village).
