(= II. p. 253, Berichtigungen, p. 266) παρακαλῶ προνοῆσαι ὀνάρ [ιον ], ἵνα κτλ. : (2) mid.—PSI V. 542.15 (iii/B.C.) σοι καθήκει ὑπὲρ τῶν τοιούτων προνοιεῖσθαι, P Tebt I. 40.12 (B.C. 117) (= Selections, p. 28) διὰ τὸ μάλιστα ἐπιβάλλειν προνοεῖσθαι τῶν βασιλικῶν, ";because it chiefly falls to you to look after the interests of the Crown,"; P Lond 1170 verso.267 (A.D. 258–259) (= III. p. 199) παρὰ Ἡρ [ω ]νείνου προνο [ο ]υμένου τῶν περὶ Θεαδελφίαν, P Oxy XII. 1491.14 (early iv/A.D.) ἵνα προνοήσωμαι ἀργυρίου, ";in order that I may provide for the money,"; OGIS 495.20 ἀνθ᾽ ὧν τῶν δημοσίων ἔργων μετὰ ἐπιμελείας προενοήσατο : (3) pass.—P Par 63.12 (B.C. 164) (= P Petr III. p. 18) τὴν πᾶσαν προσενεγκάμενος ἐκτένε ̣ι ̣αν καὶ π [ρο ]νοηθείς, ";using every effort and taking every precaution"; (Mahaffy), BGU IV. 1024vii. 5 K (end iv/A.D.)
