Vocabulary of the Greek NT

Syll 2.25 (ii/A.D.) χώραν [σ ]καπανεύειν βέβηλον ἐ [πέ ]τασσες —the famous ‘Gadatas’ inscr., translated from a rescript of Darius I. The derived verb is of late formation, no earlier authority than LXX being quotable. The adj. was an old term. techn. of religion, and not a word of the vernacular : the LXX translators needed it, and may well have equipped it with a regularly formed verb.
