Abstract: Lexicographical study of an exceptional use of the adverb ἀλόγως in some papyrus letters of the Roman period. When a person has left without saying goodbye to his correspondent this is regularly regretted by the writer. There are many possible expressions for this situation, including “NN went away ἀ-λόγως” i.e. “without saying anything.” This meaning has been misunderstood by editors, who following the dictionaries translate “without reason, unreasonably.”
