It doesn't seem to have faded away when Paul was writing to the Galatians:
QAUMAZW hOTI hOUTWS TACEWS METATIQESQE APO TOU KALESANTOS hUMAS EN CARITI
CRISTOU EIS *hETERON EUAGGELION, hO OUK ESTIN ALLO*, ktl (Gal 1:5-6).
I remember as a schoolboy asking our Divinity teacher what that could
possibly mean! I was doing Latin then, but not yet Greek; but even Latin
didn't help. "...in aliud evangelium quod non est aliud..." (Vulgate).
