For ἀβαρής in a metaphorical sense, as in 2 Corinthians 11:9, Nägeli (p. 38) cites CIG 5361.15 (Berenice, i/B.C.) ἀ. ἑαυτὸν παρέσχηται, and BGU I. 248.26 (ii/A.D.) ἐὰν δέ σοι ἀβα [ρὲ ]ς ᾖ, χρῆσόν μοι ὀνάριον. Add P Oxy VI. 933.29 (late ii/A.D.) and BGU IV. 1080.17 f. (iii/A.D. ?) εἴ σοι ἀβ [α ]ρές ἐστιν καὶ δυνα [τόν, σ ]υναπόστιλόν μοι κτλ. The physical sense is cited from Aristotle; the metaphysical appears in Plutarch (59C).
