I Conj. (from ὁμῶς, with changed accent), all the same, nevertheless, used to limit whole clauses, once in Hom. (unless it is read in Od. 11.565), Σαρπήδοντι δ' ἄχος γένετο.., ὅ. δ' οὐ λήθετο χάρμης Il. 12.393; ὅ. πιθοῦ μοι S. OT 1064, cf. Ant. 519; κοὐκ ἐπίδηλος ὅ. and yet not so as to be observed, Thgn. 442; νῦν δὲ ὅ. θαρρῶ Pl. Smp. 193e, etc.: freq. strengthd. by other words, ἀλλ' ὅ. but still, but for all that, Pi. P. 1.85, Ar. V. 1085, etc.; ὅ. μήν (Dor. μάν) Pi. P. 2.82, Pl. Plt. 297d; ὅ. μέντοι Id. Cri. 54d; ὅ. γε μήν Ar. Nu. 631, 822; ὅ. γε μέντοι Id. V. 1344, Ra. 61: used elliptically, πάντως μὲν οἴσεις οὐδὲν ὑγιές, ἀλλ' ὅ. (sc. οἰστέον) Id. Ach. 956, cf. E. Hec. 843, Ba. 1027 (prob.).


1. freq. in apodosi after καὶ εἰ (κεἰ) or καὶ ἐάν (κἄν), κεἰ τὸ μηδὲν ἐξερῶ, φράσω δ' ὅ. S. Ant. 234, cf. A. Ch. 933; but ., though it belongs in sense to the apodosis, is freq. closely attached to the protasis, μέμνησ' Ὀρέστου, κεἰ θυραῖός ἐσθ' ὅ., i.e. κεἰ θ. ἐστι, ὅμως μέμνησο, ib. 115; λέξον.., κεἰ στένεις ὅ., i.e. κεἰ στένεις, ὅ. λέξον, Id. Pers. 295; κἂν ἄποπτος ᾖς ὅ., φώνημ' ἀκούω S. Aj. 15: sts. it even stands in the protasis, ἐρημία με, κεἰ δίκαι' ὅ. λέγω, σμικρὸν τίθησι Id. OC 957; ἐγὼ μὲν εἴην, κεἰ πέφυχ' ὅ. λάτρις, ἐν τοῖσι γενναίοισιν ἠριθμημένος E. Hel. 728.

2. the protasis is freq. replaced by a part., ὕστεροι ἀπικόμενοι ἱμείροντο ὅ. Hdt. 6.120; κλῦθί μου νοσῶν ὅ. (i. e. εἰ νοσεῖς ὅ. κλῦθι) S. Tr. 1115: strengthd., πιθοῦ, καίπερ οὐ στέργων ὅ. A. Th. 712; ἱκνοῦμαι, καὶ γυνή περ οὖσ' ὅ. E. Or. 680; τάδ' ἔρδω, καὶ τύραννος ὢν ὅ. S. OC 851; ἐρήσομαι δέ, καὶ κακῶς πάσχουσ' ὅ. E. Med. 280: sts. it precedes, τόλμα.., ὅ. ἄτλητα πεπονθώς, for καίπερ πεπονθώς, ὅ. τόλμα, Thgn. 1029: in Prose, οἱ δὲ.. ὅ. ταῦτα πυνθανόμενοι ἀρρώδεον Hdt. 8.74; οἱ τετρακόσιοι.. ὅ. καὶ τεθορυβημένοι ξυνελέγοντο Th. 8.93, cf. Hdt. 5.63, X. Cyr. 8.2.21: exceptionally, ἡ ἰσομοιρία τῶν κακῶν, ἔχουσά τινα ὅμως.. κούφισιν, οὐδ' ὧς ῥᾳδία ἐδοξάζετο Th. 7.75.

3. where the protasis does not contain a verb, ἀπάλαμόν περ ὅ. (v.l. ὁμῶς) ἐπὶ ἔργον ἐγείρει Hes. Op. 20; βαρέα δ' οὖν ὅ. φράσον A. Th. 810; κόλακι, δεινῷ θηρίῳ, ὅ. ἐπέμειξεν ἡ φύσις ἡδονήν Pl. Phdr. 240b. III used to break off a speech, however.., A. Eu. 74; to refer to something previously said or to the general situation, after all, in spite of all, Th. 1.105, 3.28, 80, 7.1.

Thayer's Expanded Definition

ὅμως (ὁμός), from Homer down, yet; it occurs twice in the N. T. out of its usual position (cf. Winers Grammar, § 61, 5f.; Buttmann, § 144, 23), viz. in 1 Corinthians 14:7, where resolve thus: τά ἄψυχα, καίπερ φωνήν διδόντα, ὅμως, ἐάν διαστολήν ... πῶς κτλ. instruments without life, although giving forth a sound, yet, unless they give a distinction in the sounds, how shall it be known etc., Fritzsche, Conject. spec. i., p. 52; cf. Meyer at the passage; (Winer's Grammar, 344 (323)); again, ὅμως ἀνθρώπου ... οὐδείς ἀθετεῖ for ἀνθρώπου κεκυρωμένην διαθήκην, καίπερ ἀνθρώπου οὖσαν, ὅμως οὐδείς κτλ., a man's established covenant, though it be but a man's, yet no one, etc. Galatians 3:15; ὅμως μέντοι, but yet, nevertheless, (cf. Winer's Grammar, 444 (413)), John 12:42.

Vocabulary of the Greek NT

";property in land,"; ";estate"; (cf. Luke 15:12 f.) can be illustrated from Ptolemaic times by P Tebt I. 6.23 (B.C. 140–139) ]π᾽ οὐσιῶν, with reference to the proceeds derived ";from properties."; In Roman times the word is very common, e.g. P Ryl II. 126.7 (A.D. 28–9) γεωρ ]γοῦ τῆς Ἰουλίας Σεβ [αστῆς ] οὐσίας, ";farmer on the estate of Julia Augusta,"; ib. 138.10 (A.D. 34) τῶν ἐλαιώνων τῆς αὐτῆς οὐσίας, ";the olive-yards of the aforesaid estate,"; P Oxy III. 471.97 (ii/A.D.) τὴν οὐσίαν αὐτοῦ καὶ τῆς γυναικὸς καὶ τῶν περὶ αὐτὸν ἀναλη [[μ ]]φθῆναι κελεύεις, ";you order his property and that of his wife and friends to be confiscated"; (Edd.), al. The word is used of Imperial estate in such a passage as P Ryl II. 134.8 (A.D. 34) γεωργοῦ τῆ [ς ] Τιβερίου Καίσαρος Σεβαστοῦ οὐσία (ς) Γερμανικιανῆς, ";farmer on the Germanician estate of Tiberius Caesar Augustus."; For the corresponding use of the adj. οὐσιακός, cf. P Tebt II. 317.17 (A.D. 174–5) ἐπὶ τοῦ κρατίστου οὐσιακοῦ ἐπιτ [ρό ]που Οὐλπίου Ἡρακλείδου, ";before his highness the procurator of the Imperial estates"; (Edd.), al., and on the οὐσιακὴ γῆ as the patrimonial possession of the Emperor, see Chrest. I. i. p. 298 ff.

For οὐσία in the sense of ";essence,"; ";being,"; cf. P Leid Wvii. 38 (ii/iii A.D.) (= II. p. 105) ἀποσκεδασθήτω μου πᾶσα φηλόξ (l. φλόξ), πᾶσα δύναμις οὐσίας (cf. MGr πάνω στὴν οὐ., ";in the prime of life";), and on the general use of οὐσία, and οὐσιάζω in the magic papyri, see Wiener Studien xl. (1918), p. 5 ff. For the ὁμοούσιος of the Creeds Sharp (Epict. p. 128) compares Epict. ii. 8. 2 τίς οὖν οὐσία θεοῦ; σάρξ; μὴ γένοιτο κτλ.
