Vocabulary of the Greek NT

Cagnat IV. 293ii. 4 (Pergamon, ii/B.C.) πάντα δὲ κίνδυν ]ο [νκ ]αὶ κακοπαθίαν ἀνεκτὴν ἡγούμενος. If the reading can be accepted, the word occurs in the dialect inscription Syll 793 αἰ ἀ (ν)εκτ [ ]ν ἐστι τᾶ Θεμί [σ ]τι καὶ βέλτιον ἐ (σ)κιχρέμεν. Its appearance in the Christian letter P Oxy VI. 939.25 (iv/A.D.) (= Selections, p. 130) ἀνεκτότερον ἐσχηκέναι, ";to be in a more tolerable state,"; counts naturally for little, as NT echoes abound.
