Vocabulary of the Greek NT

δοκιμή is cited by Grimm from Dioscurides, who flourished under Hadrian (acc. to W. Christ) : Paul is accordingly the earliest authority, but certainly not the coiner, unless we are to make the medical writer dependent on him. If δοκιμάω really existed as a by-form of δοκιμάζω, δοκίμησις might produce δοκιμή as ἀγάπησις produced ἀγάπη and ἀπάντησις ἀπάντη. In any case δοκιμή is a new formation of the Hellenistic age.
