Vocabulary of the Greek NT

OGIS 509.8 (ii/A.D.) οὐδὲ τοῦτο τὸ μέρος κατέλιπον ἀδιάκριτον. For the adv. see P Oxy IV. 715.36 (A.D. 131) where a registration of property is certified with the words κ ̣[α ]τακεχώ (ρικα) ἀδιακ (ρίτως ?). The editors translate . ";jointly,"; as = κοινῶς ἐξ ἴσου in l. 7, but Wilcken (Archiv iv. p. 254) prefers ";ohne Untersuchung";—a rendering which may help us in James 3:17.
