For β . = ";prize,"; as in 1 Corinthians 9:24, Philippians 3:14, see Priene 118.8 (i/B.C.) τοῖς νικήσασιν ὡς ] ἀσφαλέστατα πρὸς πάντα τὸν χρόνον γενηθῆναι τὰ βραβ [εῖα , CIG 3674 (A.D. 166) τιμηθεὶς χρυσείῳ βραβείῳ . The word is used by Vettius Valens p. 174.21 κἀκείνοις τὸ βραβεῖον ἀπονέμειν , and similarly p. 288.8. [An instance of βραβεια appears in BGU IV. 1027xxvii. 18 (iv/A.D.) in a fragmentary context; but Wilcken’s revision, Chrest. I. p. 502, shows that the word is βρέβεια = brevia.] Nägeli, p. 37, cites Menander and late poets, with some inscrr. of ii/iii A.D., and the Paris Zauberpapyrus 662.
