In the Lord's prayer EPIOUSIOS is commonly translated "Daily Bread". Danker
in the new BAGD notes that Origen is very likely correct in saying the word
is coined by the evangelists and does not occur outside Christian

But recently, I was told that EPIOUSIOS was used to refer to military
rations in Classical Greek. Is any one aware of any usage of EPIOUSIOS
outside Christian literature?
