Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The evidence of the papyri, so far as we have remarked it, confirms the equivalence of νυνί to νῦν in the NT (as Grimm notes) : cf. e.g. P Petr III. 42 H(8) f..4 (iii/B.C.) νυνὶ [δὲ ἐν φόβωι ε ]ι ̣̓μὶ οὐ μετρίωι, P Oxy III. 49O.5 (A.D. 124) Διονυσίῳ. . νυνεὶ ἀφήλικι, ";Dionysius now a minor,"; ib. 506.25 (A.D. 143) τὸ πρὶν ἀμπελικοῦ κτήματος νυνεὶ δὲ χερσαμπέλ [ου, ";what was previously a vineyard but is now dry vine-land"; (Edd.), ib, VI. 908.5 (A.D. 199) Σαραπίων. . νυνεὶ εὐθηνιάρχης τῆς αὐτῆς πόλεως, ";Sarapion at present eutheniarch of the said city."; The adverb is joined to a subst. (cf. Galatians 4:25 al.) in P Ryl II. 111.4 (A.D. 161) τὴν νυνεὶ γυναῖ [κά μου.
