I'd welcome opinions etc re Gal 6:11 and the PHLIKOIS GRAMMASIN with which
Paul writes THi EMHi CEIRI. There's at least one parallel, in Plutarch's
Lives, in which Plutarch says that Cato wrote his History of Rome IDIAi
CEIRI KAI MEGALOIS GRAMMASIN "so that his son might have in his own home an
aid to acquaintance with his country's ancient traditions". This suggests
that to write with large letters and in one's own hand was done with a work
the author regarded as highly significant.

Thanks in anticipation,

Rick Strelan
