Vocabulary of the Greek NT

P Oxy VI. 939.10 ff. (iv/A.D.), a letter from a Christian dependent to his master regarding the illness of his mistress, has the following : συνγνώμην δέ, κύριέ μου, σχοίης μοι [καὶ εὔνους ] ἀποδέχει με εἰ κ ̣α ̣ὶ ἐς τηλικαύτην σε [ἀγωνία ]ν ἄκων ἐνέβαλον γράψας περὶ αὐτῆς ὅσα [ἐκομίσω ], ";please pardon me, my lord, and receive me kindly, though I unwillingly caused you so much anxiety by writing to you the messages which you received"; (Edd.). Syll 693.61 (iii/B.C.) ἐμφανίζειν δὲ αὐτοῖς ὅτι καὶ νῦν πρῶτοι τὸν ἀγῶνα ταῖς Μούσαις στεφα [νί ]την ἀποδέχοντ [αι. . ., ib. 790.41 (i/B.C.) ἁγνεύοντες καὶ νήφοντες καὶ ἀποδεχόμενοι τὰ πινάκια παρὰ τῶν μαντευομένων. OGIS 692.1 (Egypt) οὐκ ἀπεδεξάμην σε τ (ῆς) [ν λόγοις ] τριβῆς [ἕνεκεν ]. Vettius Valens p. 250.22 τινὲς μὲν εὐχερεῖς καὶ ἐπακτικοὶ τῆς ἀληθείας ἀποδέχονται, which Kroll renders ";laudantur,"; comparing p. 329.16 ὅθεν ἀποδεκτέος ὁ τοιοῦτος. Gildersleeve (Just. M. p. 239) remarks on the ";respectful"; tone of the verb in Acts 24:3 πάντη τε καὶ πανταχοῦ ἀποδεχόμεθα. It survives in MGr.
