Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The MGr ἀστράφτει , ";it lightens,"; reinforces the literary record. The word was vernacular, though, as in the case of the noun, we know of no exx. except in the magic papyri, P Lond 46.150 (iv/A.D.) (= I. p. 70) ἐγώ εἰμι ὁ ἀστράπτων : so ib. 121.234 (iii/A.D.) and 122.92 (iv/A.D.) (= I. pp. 92, 119).
