Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The ";perfective"; sense in διαφυγεῖν ";escape through fleeing"; (see Proleg. p. 112) comes out well in P Tebt I. 44.28 (B.C. 114) μή ποτε ἐξ ὑστέρου παθόντος τί μου ἀθῶιος διαφύγηι, ";so that if anything happens to me subsequently he may not escape unpunished"; (Edd.) : cf. P Amh II. 131.6 (early ii/A.D.) ἐλπίζω δὲ θεῶν θελόντων ἐκ τῶν λαλουμένων διαφεύξεσθαι καὶ μετὰ τὴν πεντεκαιδεκάτην ἀναπλεύσειν, ";but I hope, if the gods will, to yet escape from the talking and after the fifteenth to return home"; (Edd.).
