A good ex. of this word is found in the prodigal’s letter, BGU III. 846.14 (ii/A.D.). ἤκουσα παρὰ το [ῦ Ποστ ]ούμου τὸν εὑρόντα σαι ἐν τῳ Ἀρσαινοείτῃ καὶ ἀκαίρω ̣ς πάντα σοι διήγηται, ";and unseasonably related all to you."; Cf. P Rein 48.5 (ii/A.D.) φθάσας ἀπέστειλα πρός σε τὸν ἀγροφύλακα διηγησάμενός σοι (";pour te raconter";) τὴν οὖσαν διάθεσιν ἐνθάδε, P Lond 479.7 (? iii/A.D.)
