Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The adj. is very common. P Hib I. 51.4 (B.C. 245) πρι ]α ̣μενος ̣λάμβανε ἀρεστὰς ̣τ [ι ]μ ̣ω ̣ν ̣ ὑπογεγραμμένων, ";accept, if satisfactory, and buy at the prices below written"; (Edd.). P Grenf II. 24.14 (B.C. 105) παρεχέσθω (sc. τὸν οἶνον) μόνιμον καὶ ἀρεστὸν ἕως Ἀθὺρ α ̄, ";wine that will keep and be satisfactory till Athyr 1st."; P Amh II. 48.8 (B.C. 106) χορηγοῦντες κενώματα ἀρεστά, ";providing acceptable vessels"; (Edd.). In P Tebt II. 342.17 (late ii/A.D.) a pottery is described as λίθοις ἀρεστοῖς ἐξηρτισ (μένον), ";newly fitted with stones in good order"; : so .22, .25. Cf. Syll 522.17 (iii/B.C.) οἴνο [υ ] παρέχειν ἀρεστόν, and for the adverb Michel 456.15 ff. (ii/B.C.) ἀποδεδείχασιν οἱ ἐπιμεληταὶ τῆι βουλ [ῆι ] συντετελεσμένα πάντα τὰ ἔργα ἀρεστῶς, BGU IV. 1119.21 (B.C. 5) τὰ προσήκοντα ἔργα π ̣α ̣ν ̣τα καθ᾽ ὥρα [ν ] καὶ κατὰ καιρὸν ἀρεστῶς. The collocation of εὐάρεστος and δόκιμος in Romans 14:18 is closely paralleled in P Amh II. 89.8 (A.D. 121) τὸ (l. τὸν) δὲ ἀργυρικὸν φόρον δόκιμον ἄριστον (l. ἀρεστόν), if the editors’ certain emendation be accepted. So P Flor I. 1.6 (A.D. 153) ἀργύριον δόκιμον νομειτευόμενον ἀρεστόν : P Lond 938.6 (A.D. 225) (= III. p. 150), al.
