Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For the intransitive meaning ";depart"; (Polybius and later), cf. P Tor I. 1ii. 16 (B.C. 116) (= Chrest. II. p. 32) ἐγὼ δὲ ἐφ᾽ ἱκανὰς ἡμέρας καταφθαρεὶς ἠναγκάσθην, τῶν ἀνθρώπων μὴ ἐρχομένων εἰς τὰς χεῖρας, ἀναλῦσαι εἰς τὸ τεταγμένον, ";demandatam mihi stationem repetere"; (Peyron, and so Mitteis). Closely parallel is the contemporary P Par 15.29 (B.C. 120) οἰομένων ἐφ᾽ ἱκανὸν χρόνον καταφθαρέντα με ἐντεῦθεν ἀναλύσειν. So ib. 22.29 (ii/B.C.) ἀποσυλήσας ἡμᾶς ἀνέλυσε, P Lond 44.17 (B.C. 161) (= I. p. 34) μετὰ κραυγῆς τε διαστελλομένου μεθ᾽ ἡσυχίας ἀναλύειν. In a Ptolemaic papyrus published by Grenfell-Hunt in Archiv i. p. 59 ff. we find λύσαντες ἐκχρήματα θ ̄ ἀνέλυσαν, where the editors note that ἀνέλυσαν may = ";they returned"; (cf. Luke 12:36) or may refer to the preceding βασιλικὸν χῶμα, ";they destroyed it."; For the meaning ";die"; Nägeli, p. 34, cites the memorial inscription IGSI 1794.2 (Rom.) καὶ πῶς μοι βεβίωται καὶ πῶς ἀνέλυσα μαθήσ (), cf. ib. 159 ἀναλύειν τὸν βίον.
