Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The strongly affirmative sense of πάντως, ";surely,"; ";by all means,"; is well seen in P Ryl II. 229.20 (A.D. 38) πάντω (ς) δέ, Ἀφροδίσιε, τοὺς ἄρτους μοι πέμψον καὶ τὸ ὀψἀριον, ";be sure, Aphrodisius, to send me the loaves and the relish"; (cf. John 21:9), P Fay 129.3 (iii/A.D.) ἐτάξατο πάντως καταβῆναι τῇ ἑνδεκάτῃ, ";he appointed for certain the eleventh for his coming down"; (Edd.), P Oxy XIV. 1676.15 (iii/A.D.) ἀλλὰ πάντως κρείττονα εἶχες · διὰ τοῦτο ὑπερηφάνηκας ἡμᾶς, ";but you doubtless had better things to do; that was why you neglected us"; (Edd.), ib. 1680.14 (iii/iv A.D.) ὑπονοοῦμαι ὅτι πάντως πάλιν τί ποτε ἔχει πρὸς σέ, ";I suspect that he must assuredly have some further claim against you,"; and P Giss I. 103.22 (iv/A.D.) πάντως ταχέως ἡμᾶς κατ ̣άλαβε : cf. also Herodas VII. 89.

The word is found in a complete negation in P Vat A.15 (B.C. 168) (= Witkowski.2, p. 65, UPZ i. p. 303) οὐ γὰρ πάντως δεῖ στενῶς ἐπανάγοντά <σε > π ̣ροσμένειν ἕως κτλ. cf. Romans 3:9, and for a partial negation see 1 Corinthians 5:10 (Blass-Debrunner § 433. 2). For a weakened πάντως = ";probably,"; ";possibly,"; see Cadbury JBL xliv. p. 223 ff.
