Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For the forensic ὑπόδικος = ";answerable to,"; ";bring under the cognizance of,"; rather than ";guilty before,"; as in Romans 3:19, cf. Michel 1009.86 (c. B.C. 275) ἐὰν δέ τις πα ]ρὰ ταῦτα ποιῆι, ὑπόδικος ἔστω ἐν Ἀμφικ [τί ]οσιν, and ib. 1357.39 (B.C. 300–299) ὑπόδικος ἔστω Διόδωρος ἐάν τι π [ροσ ]οφείλει τῆς μισθώσεως. See also P Hal I. 1.101 (mid. iii/B.C.) ὁ δὲ μ [ὴ ποιῶν κατὰ τὰ γεγραμ ]μένα ὑπόδικο [ς ἔσ ]τω τοῦ βλάβους (τῶι ἀδικουμένωι), and P Fay 22.9 (i/A.D.) where, amongst other Ptolemaic marriage enactments, certain officials are held answerable—ο [ ]πόδικοι (l. ὑπόδικοι) ἔσ [τωσαν —apparently for the dowry.
