Ὀναίμην (Philemon 1:20), ";may I have satisfaction,"; is the only opt. form from an unthematic verb in the NT : cf. Audollent 92.3 (iii/B.C.) ὄναιντο, Kaibel 502.27 (iii/iv A.D.) μήτ᾽ ἐλπίδων ὄναιτο, and see Moulton Gr. ii. p. 213. In C. and B. ii. p. 730 No. 658A. .20 the gen. has given place to the acc.—τοῖς ὑπὸ ἕνα κερὸν [ὀ ]νη [θ ]εῖσιν τὸ τῆς ζωῆς μέρος. For the thought of filial offices underlying the word, as in the Philemon passage, see the citations in Lightfoot Comm. ad l. The subst ὀνή occurs in P Tebt II. 420 (iii/A.D.), a letter from Sarapion to his brother, asking for assistance in his pecuniary troubles—.24 δὸς οὖν τὴν ὀνήν σου ἵνα ἀνασπασθῇ ἀναγκαίως, ";so give me your help, that (the barley) may of necessity be pulled up (?)"; (Edd.). For ὄνησις cf. the good advice of a father to his son, P Oxy III. 531.12 (ii/A.D.) τοῖς βιβλίοις σου αὐτὸ μόνον πρόσεχ [ε ] φιλολογῶν καὶ ἀπ᾽ αὐτῶν ὄνησιν ἕξεις, ";give your undivided attention to your books, devoting yourself to learning, and then they will bring you profit"; (Edd.).
