In one of my first published essays (Louis H. Feldman, “Jewish ‘Sympathizers’ in Classical Literature and Inscriptions,” Transactions of the American Philological Association 81 [1950], pp. 200–208) I, following Lake (Kirsopp Lake, “Proselytes and God-fearers,” in Frederick Foakes Jackson and Lake, The Beginnings of Christianity I. The Acts of The Apostles, Vol. 5 [London, 1933], pp. 74–96), questioned whether the terms in the Book of Acts, phoboumenoi and sebomenoi ton theon were necessarily references to such a class, and my conclusion was accepted by Robert (Louis Robert, Nouvelles inscriptions de Sardis [Paris, 1964], pp. 41–45), among others.
