Vocabulary of the Greek NT

διήγησις is used ter in the letter of Aristeas to Polycrates (1, 8, 322) to describe the ";narrative"; he has to unfold—one thinks of the first and last lines of Sordello. The noun occurs twice in PSI I. 85 (iii/A.D.), from a rhetorical treatise, defining what was technically known as ἡ χρεία : see above s.v. ἀπομνημόνευμα. The χρεία is to be ";concise"; : —.8 Διὰ τί σύντομον; ὅτι πολλάκις ἐκταθὲν ἢ διήγησις γίνεται ἢ ἄλλο τι. Δ. therefore implies some fullness of narrative, which suits the use of the word in the Preface of Lk. MGr keeps the -μα noun—διήγημα ";narrative"; with dimin. διηγηματάκι.
