Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For . = τέλειος, see Kaibel Praef 222 b.4 ἐτῶν ἀριθμὸν ὀγδοήκοντ᾽ ἀρτίων. In the difficult passage Herodas iv. 95, Nairn renders ἀρτίης μοίρης, ";adequate"; share. The companion adjectives help to define the word in Vettius Valens, p. 14.15, αἱ δὲ ϛ ̄ Ἀφρωδίτης (sc. μοῖραι) ἱλαραί, εὔτεχνοι, διαυγεῖς, ἄρτιοι, καθαροί, εὔχροοι. The adverb is found in P Lips I. 40iii. 16 (iv/v A.D.) where a scribe is directed ἀκολουθεῖν τῷ νυκτοστρατήγῳ ἀρτίως κατὰ πρόσταγμα τῆς σῆς [λ ]α [μ ]π [ρότητος ], and BGU III. 749.9 (Byz.) ἀπὸ νεομηνίας τοῦ ἀρτίως [? ἀρχομένου ] μηνός.
