P Fay 111.20 (A.D. 95–6) (= Selections, p. 67) το ̣̣ν λ ̣[ι ]μ ̣νασμ [ὸν ] δ ̣[ ]ο ̣ξον τῶν [ ]λ ̣α ̣[ι ]ών [ων τ ]ῶν πάντον, ";hasten with the flooding of all the olive-yards"; (Edd.), ib. 112.2 (A.D. 99) εὖ πυήσις διῶξαι τοὺς σκαφήτρους τῶν ἐλαιώνον, ";please carry forward the digging of the olive-yards"; (Edd.). For διώκω = ";pursue,"; cf. OGIS 532.25 (B.C. 3) ὅπλο [ις τε ] καὶ σιδήρωι διώξειν, and the moral tale in P Grenf II. 84.7 (v/vi A.D.) where a patricide, fleeing into the desert, ἐδιόκαιτο (l. ἐδιώκετο) ὑπὸ λέωντος, ";was pursued by a lion."; The phrase δίωκε τὸν λόγον = ";pursue the recital of the formula"; is common in the magic papyri : see the editor’s note on P Lond 46.394 (iv/A.D.) (= I. p. 78). We may add two exx. of the verb from Christian amulets. The first, P Oxy VIII. 1151 (? v/A.D.) opens, Φεῦγε π ̣ν ̣(εῦμ)α ̣ μεμισιμένον, Χ (ριστό)ς σε διώκει, ";Fly, hateful spirit! Christ pursues thee."; In the second, BGU III. 954.7 (vi/A.D.) (= Selections, p. 133), the Lord God is invoked—ὅπως διώξῃς ἀπ᾽ ἐμοῦ τοῦ δούλου σου τὸν δαίμονα προβασκανίας, ";that Thou mayst drive from me Thy servant the demon of witchcraft."; MGr. διώχνω, διώχτω, ";hunt.";
