spediza / spedists Jiuleis.
I was thinking of the parallel with 'fruma sabbato' = PROSABBATON :
'þis dagis afarsabbate' = THi MIAi TWN SABBATWN. The syntactical
alterations from the Greek could be significant, and 'afar' is
reminiscent of OE 'æfter(r)a géola'. On the choice between
comparative and superlative (-iza : -ists), where there are only two
things being compared, Gothic "almost without exception" uses the
comparative, according to Streitberg, in contrast to NT Greek which
doesn't make this sharp distinction (Streitberg/Stopp 1981, 274a).
