Vocabulary of the Greek NT

ἀποκρυφος is a favourite word with Vettius Valens. It denotes p. 216 the ";hidden"; organs of the body (τῶν ἐντὸς ἀ.). The influence of Gemini (p. 730) produces κριτικοὶ κακῶν καὶ ἀγαθῶν, φρόνιμοι, περίεργοι, ἀποκρύφων μύσται, etc. In p. 1088 περὶ δεσμῶν καὶ συνοχῶν καὶ ἀποκρύφων πραγμάτων καὶ κατακρίσεως καὶ ἀτιμίας it suggests unknown disasters of the future. P. 1766 περὶ θεμελίων ἢ κτημάτων (? κτισμάτων ed.) ἢ ἀποκρύφων ἢ περὶ νεκρικῶν, subjects on which signs are sought ἀπὸ τοῦ ὑπογείου. In p. 179.24 (so 30121, 3354) μυστικῶν ἢ ἀποκρύφων πραγμάτων suggests ";mysteries"; again. The adverb is joined with ἐφθονημένως p. 3015, of ";mystifying and grudging"; expositions. See also Kaibel 102810 (Andros, iv/A.D., a hymn to Isis) ἀπόκρυφα σύνβολα δέλτων εὑρομένα. P Leid W is Μοϋσέως ἱερὰ βίβλος ἀπόκριφος (viii. 33) : cf.i. 18.
