Vocabulary of the Greek NT

In PSI I. 41.16 (iv/A.D.) a woman complains regarding her husband—ἐξέωσέ [μ ]ε ἄνευ αἰτίας πρὸ δέκα τούτω [ν ἐνι ]αυτῶν εἰς τὴ [ν πα ]ροῦσαν [ἀπορίαν (?)—cf. the stronger force of the v.l. in Acts 27:39. Cf. also P Flor I. 58.9 (iii/A.D.) ἐξέωσ ̣α ̣ν ̣ followed by a lacuna, and perhaps P Leid Wi. 10 (ii/iii A.D.) εἰσηλθόντος γὰρ τοῦ θεοῦ περισσότερον ἔξα (l. ἔξω) ὠθήσονται, where the editor suggests that we should perhaps read ἐξωσθήσονται.
