Vocabulary of the Greek NT

That ἔναντι with the gen., as in the phrase ἔναντι τοῦ θεοῦ (Acts 8:21), can no longer be confined to bibl. Greek (Grimm) is proved by its occurrence in the translation of a Roman senator’s ";Consultum,"; Syll 300.52 (BC. 170) περὶ τούτου τοῦ πράγ [ματο ]ς ὕστερον ἔναντι Γαΐου Λοκρετίου βουλεύσασθαι ἔδοξεν : cf. also for imperial times P Oxy III. 495.5 (A.D. 181–9) ε ̣̀ν ̣αντι Πέλα Wackernagel Hellenistica, pp. 1 ff. shows that the word came into the Κοινή about B.C. 300 from Cretan, Delphian, or a like dialect, helped by the fact that the Attic ἐναντίον had this sense : see further s.v. ἀπέναντι.
