Vocabulary of the Greek NT

BGU I. 45.10 (A.D. 203) ἀνὴρ βίαιος ὑπάρχων μὴ λειτουργῶν , τῇ βίᾳ αὐτοῦ ἐπῆλθεν αὐτῷ . P Leid W vii. 27 (ii/iii A.D.) ἐλεήμων ἐν ὥραις βιαίος (for -αις , or -οις ). Cagnat IV. 351.31 has ἔργου βιαίου in a fragmentary context, in a rescript of Hadrian at Pergamum. The adj. occurs several times in Vettius Valens, who also has the compound βιαιοθάνατος , and derivatives -τέω and -σία . For the adverb, which is commoner, see P Par 14.22 ἐνοικοῦσιν βιαίως of those who ";forcibly"; take possession of a house, and cf. BGU II. 467.9 (ii/A.D.) βιαίως ἀπέσπασεν [τ ]ο ̣υ ̣̣ς καμή [λο ]υς ib. 648.9 (A.D. 164 or 196) (= Chrest. I. p. 423) βιαίως ἀντι [λ ]αμβάνονται τ [ο ]ῦ πατρικοῦ μου μέρους ; and OGIS 609.10 (iii/A.D.) ἐάν τις ὑμῖν ἐπιδημήσῃ βιαίως στρατιώτης . The comparative βιαιότερον is found P Lond 301.18 (B.C. 116–11) (= II. p. 14) βιαιότερον ἐμβατ [εύ ]σ [α ]ς εἰς τὸ δη [λούμενο ]ν ἔδα ̣φος .
