";false,"; ";untrue"; : P Cairo Zen II. 59140.14 (B.C. 256) γνώριζε οὖν Κριτίαν γράφοντά σοι ψευδῆ, P Tebt I. 73.6 (B.C. 113–11) ἀνεν ̣ηνέχθ ̣αι ἐν ψευ [δ ]έσι, and BGU III. 1011ii. 16 (ii/B.C.) διότι γὰρ πολ [λὰ ] ληρώι [δη ] καὶ ψευδῆ προσα ̣γ ̣[γ ]έλ ̣[λε ]ται κατανοεῖς καὶ αὐτός. Exx. of a later date seem to be rare, but cf. OGIS 669.54 (i/A.D.) ἐάν τι εὑρεθῶσι ψευδὲς ἤ <ι > παρὰ τὸ δέον παραγεγραφότες, and CPR I. 232.10 (ii/iii A.D.) ψευδεῖς αἰτίας ἡμῖν ἐπιφέρειν. The word is supplied in the Byzantine papyrus P Masp III. 67295.6.

For the adj. ψευδοπόρφυρος, ";of false purple,"; see P Oxy VII. 1051.15 (iii/A.D.).
