with epiousios,
the question needs to explain why a new word would be coined or at least a
very rare word would be used?
the reference to Ex 16.4 mentions 'bread from heaven', which was easily
translated in LXX as ARTOUS EK TOU OURANOU. [minor adjustment of
collective noun for plural reflects sensitivity to greek on this point in
the LXX]. the concept of "heavenly bread" would have been easily expressed
in Greek and would not explain rare coinage. i don't see ex 16.4 in the
lord's prayer. hence i look elsewhere, e.g. pr 30.8
