Vocabulary of the Greek NT

P Lond 130.70 (a horoscope—i/ii A.D.) (= I. p. 135) οὐ τὸ δωδεκατημόριον διηύγαζεν σκορπίου περὶ τὸν πρῶτον σφόνδυλον. P Leid Wiv. 39 (ii/iii A.D.) καχάσαντος (i.e. καγχ —) πρῶτον πρῶτον (om.) αὐτοῦ ἐφάνη φῶς αὐτή, κ (αὶ) διηύγασεν τὰ πάντα. In BGU IV. 1143.15 f. ]̣υ κεκω ̣πημ [ένα ] κ ̣α ̣ι ̣, διε ̣υ ̣γ ̣ασ ̣[μένα ] καὶ ἐπιδιευ ̣γ ̣ασμ ̣ε ̣ν ̣α ̣ κ ̣α ̣ι ̣̣ κ ̣ε ̣[καυμ ]ένα τῇ καθηκούσῃ ὀπτήσι, of pottery. The editor, W. Schubart, after glossing the first participle as ";mit Griffen versehen,"; confesses that the next word is unintelligible to him—it might begin with διευτ. A perf. partic. from διαυγάζω is possible : could it mean ";(semi) transparent,"; like διαυγής ?
