For the adverb see Magn 163.15 ff. πᾶσάν τε λειτουργίαν . . . τελέσαντος τῇ πατρίδι αὐθαιρέτως , and the common technical phrase ἑκουσίως καὶ αὐθαιρέτως , as P Lond 280.7 (A.D. 55) (= II. p. 193), BGU II. 581.6 (A.D. 133), P Lips I. 17.9 (A.D. 377), P Giss I. 56.3 (vi/A.D.), al. : the phrase may also be expressed adjectivally, as with γνώμῃ in P Oxy X. 1280.5 (iv/A.D.).
