Vocabulary of the Greek NT

P Ryl II. 114.19 (c. A.D. 280) μετ᾽ ἀπιλῆς με ἀπέπεμψεν ";drove me away with a threat."; BGU IV. 1060.25 (B.C. 23–2) ὅθεν καταπεπονη ̣μένοι προήγμεθα πρὸς ἀπειλαῖς. CP Herm 25ii. 2, a law report, makes an advocate say οὔτε συσκευα [ὶ οὔτε ] ἀπειλαὶ κατεσίγησαν μ ̣[ . . . . . . . ]. P Ryl I. 28.117 (iv/A.D.) the ";quivering"; (see under ἅλλομαι) of the left shin means for a slave ἀπειλαὶ καὶ μόχθοι. In the vi/A.D. inscr. OGIS 521.14 (Abydos) we have ἀεὶ τὴν ἀπιλὴν ἐν τοῖς πράγμασιν ὁρῶντα : Dittenberger accepts the emendation γράμμασιν.
