Vocabulary of the Greek NT

In P Amh II. 78.13 f. (A.D. 184) it seems certain that we should read μ [ου ] πλεο ́νεκτῖ ἄνθρωπος α [ ]θάδης (not ἀσθενής ). A few lines lower we find τοιαύτης ο [ ]ν αὐθαδίας ἐν αὐτῷ οὔσης οὐ δυνάμενος [ἐν ]καρτερεῖν , ";his audacity having reached this pitch I can endure no longer"; (Edd.). According to Crönert Mem. Herc., p. 32, the form αὐθαδία , which in Attic is confined to the poets, ";linguae pedestris auctoribus sine dubio reddenda est."; Its vernacular character may be further established by P Tebt I. 16.10 (B.C. 114) αὐθαδίᾳ χρώμενοι ";persisting in their violent behaviour"; (Edd.), Syll 893.27 (ii/A.D.) καὶ τοὺς ὑβρίσαντας τοὺς ἥρωας (the Di Manes) τῶ ̣ν τέκνων ἡμῶν καὶ ἐμὲ καὶ τὸν ἄνδρα μου Π . καὶ ἐπιμένοντας τῇ αὐθαδίᾳ , CPHerm 1.8 (no context), BGU III. 747 ii. 11 (A.D. 139) μέχρι αὐθαδίας ἐπ [ι ]χειροῦσιν φθάνειν , ib. IV. 1187.21 (i/B.C.) τῆι δὲ περὶ ἑαυτὰς βίαι καὶ αὐθαδίᾳ [συ ]νχρησάμενοι , P Gen I. 31.9 (A.D. 145–6) τῇ αὐτῇ αὐθαδίᾳ χρώμενος . The subst. is not found in the NT, but see LXX Isaiah 24:8, Didache 5:1. The adverb is quotable from P Tebt II. 331.7 (c. A.D. 131) ἐπῆλθο ̣[ν α ]ὐθάδως εἰς ἣν ε ̣̀χ ̣ω ̣ ἐν τῇ κώμῃ οἰκίαν ̣, P Grenf I. 47.10 (A.D. 148) ἐπιγνοὺς αὐθάδως τεθε [ρ ]ίσθαι ὑπ [ ] Ὥρους κτλ ., P Ryl II. 133.16 (A.D. 33) αὐθάδως κατέσπασεν ἀπὸ μέρους ";ventured to pull it partly down"; (Ed.), P Lond 358.12 (c. A.D. 150) (= II. p. 172) αὐθάδως ἀναστραφέντὼν , and P Oxy X. 1242iii. 44 (iii/A.D.—a semi-literary piece), where Trajan says to an anti-Semite advocate, Ἴδε , δεύτερόν σοι λέγω , Ἑρμαΐσκε , αὐθάδως ἀποκρείνῃ πεποιθὼς τῷ σεαυτοῦ γένει .
