Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The verb and its derivative noun are conspicuous in Egyptian documents to describe the conventus, the judicial ";circuit"; of the Praefect. The subject has been exhaustively treated by Wilcken, Archiv iv. p. 368 ff. His researches are now supplemented and in one important respect modified by a new document, P Ryl II. 74 (A.D. 133–5), the introduction to which gives a sufficient account of the matter. Hunt shows there that the main object of the Praefect’s proposed journey south ";was judicial, i.e. that he had meant to hold a conventus somewhere in southern Egypt."; Thebes becomes thus, according to the new evidence, a probable assize town, visited not annually, but as business demanded. For the verb in this sense cf. P Ryl l.c..8 νυνεὶ δὲ διαλογίζ [ομαι τὴν Θηβαΐδ ]α καὶ τοὺς Ἑπτὰ νομοὺς κατὰ τὴν ̣ [συνήθειαν, P Oxy III. 484.24 (A.D. 138) ὅπου ἐὰν ὁ κράτιστος ἡγεμὼν Αὐίδιος Ἡλιόδωροςἐ π᾽ ἀγαθῷ τὸν νομὸν διαλογίζηται ἢ δικαιοδοτῇ, ";wherever his highness the praefect Avidius Heliodorus holds his auspicious court for the nome or administers justice"; (Edd.). (Cf. ὅπου ἐὰν τὸν τοῦ νομοῦ διαλο ̣γισμὸν [ ] δικαιοδοσίαν ποιή [σῃ, P Lond 358.19 (c. A.D. 150) (= II. p. 172).) Similarly P Oxy IV. 709.4 (c. A.D. 50), where again the verb takes names of districts judicially visited in the accus. In Vettius Valens p. 245.26 ἐκ τούτων δεῖ διαλογίζεσθαι τὰς δὲ (omit) αἱρέσεις the verb is apparently transitive, with the meaning ";discuss,"; which is not far from the legal sense described. No instance of the verb in this sense can be quoted from the NT, where the reference is always to ";inward deliberation or questioning,"; but see s.v. διαλογισμός.
