Vocabulary of the Greek NT

In P Eleph 23.1 .9f. (B.C. 223–2) we find the characteristic phrase ἔνοχον ̣ εἶναι τῆι ἀσεβείαι τ ̣οῦ ὅρκου : cf. Syll 560.30 (Rhodian dialect, iii/B.C.) ἢ ἔνοχος ἔστω τᾶι ἀσεβείαι (of violating certain taboos concerning a temple—the last of them μηδὲ ὑποδήματα ἐσφερέτω μηδὲ ὕειον μηθέν ), and of a much later date OGIS 262.15 (iii/A.D.) ἔνοχον εἶναι ἀσεβειᾳ . In Syll 190.10 we have . with a genitive, εἰσ ]πηδήσαντας νύκτωρ ἐπ᾽ ἀδικίαι [καὶ ] ἀσεβείαι τοῦ ἱεροῦ : King Lysimachus (B.C. 306–281) is decreeing penalties against men who tried to burn a temple. In the ";Apologia pro vita sua"; of Antiochus I, OGIS 383.115 (middle of i/B.C.) it is stated that χαλεπὴ νέμεσις βασιλικῶν δαιμόνων τιμωρὸς ὁμοίως ἀμελίας τε καὶ ὕβρεως ἀσέβειαν διώκει , and almost immediately afterwards there is a reference to the toilsome burdens of impiety—τῆς δὲ ἀσεβείας ὀπισθοβαρεῖς ἀνάγκαι .
