Latin words in Greek

centurio gives κεντορίων (at Philae, 32 BC), κεντυρίων (NT., when not ἑκατοντάρχης: κεντυρι- is relatively widespread in epigraphy: e.g., SB V 8449 39/40 AD), and κεντουρίων in John the Lydian, de magistratibus (6th. c. AD; but cf. the related adjective in Egypt or Nubia in the 1st ? c. AD: SB V 5818).

In yet later Greek, illustris gives ἰλλουστρία (illustr(i)a) and ἰλλοῦστρος (Rev.Supp. s.v. ἴλλυστρος).
