Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For the contrast with Ἕλλην see OGIS 765.16 (iii/B.C.) αὐτὸς δὲ ἀντετά [ξ ]ατο πρὸς τοὺς βαρβάρους ἀ [τ ]ιμ [άζοντάς τε ἡμᾶς ] . . . καὶ εἰς τοὺς Ἕλληνας [παρανομοῦντας ], cf. 15, 19, 21, 32; ib. 763.10 (letter of Eumenes II., ii/B.C.) ἀναδείξας ἐμαυτὸν εὐεργέτην τῶν Ἑλλήνων πολλοὺς μὲν καὶ μεγάλους ἀγῶνας ὑπέστην πρὸς τοὺ [ς ] βαρβάρους —apparently the Galatae, see Dittenberger’s note, and for a similar reference Magn 46.10. Berber is used in the same way by Egyptians to denote non-Egyptian peoples. In P Lond 410.6 (c. A.D. 346) (= II. p. 298) a mother beseeches Abinnaeus to release from service her son—ἀπῆλθεν οὖν μετὰ τὸν βάρβαρον . P Par 10.9 (B.C. 145) tells of a Syrian slave ἐστιγμένος τὸν δεξιὸν καρπὸν γράμμασι βαρβαρικοῖς , presumably Syrian. The more ethical sense of the word (as Ezra 21.31 (36)) may be illustrated from Aristeas 122 τὸ τραχὺ καὶ βάρβαρον τῆς διανοίας .
