In P Magd 12.11 (B.C. 217) διέξοδος is used for the ";conclusion"; of a trial : it is prayed that men who have wrongfully taken possession of land should not be allowed to get in the harvest ἕως δὲ τοῦ διέξοδον λαβεῖν τὴν κρίσιν μὴ θερίζειν αὐτούς This rather supports Grimm’s view of Matthew 22:9, ";the issues of the streets,"; i.e. where they lead out from the city into the country. Cf. Aristeas 105, where, as Thackeray (Trans. p. 23 n..3) points out, the διέξοδοι, the main streets leading out of the city, and the δίοδοι, cross-streets, seem to be distinguished. In Vettius Valens, p. 334.16, we have ἐγὼ δὲ τούτου φρουρίου ἐκκόψας τινὰ μέρη πυλῶν τοῖς βουλομένοις τὴν διέξοδον ἐμήνυσα πλέον. There is a curious derivative in P Brem 73.4 (ap. Chrest. I. p. 277) (c. A.D. 117) περισσὸν ἡγοῦμαι διεξωδέστερον ὑμεῖν γράφειν, which Wilcken notes = διεξοδικώτερον, ";ausführlicher.";
