Vocabulary of the Greek NT

P Thead 21.8 (A.D. 318) τίνες κακοῦργοι ἐπιστάντες ἐκεῖσε διὰ νυκτός κτλ., and a Cairo papyrus, Chrest. I. 240.9 (A.D. 322) γενο ̣[μ ]ενοι ἐκεῖσε. For ἐκεῖσε = ἐκεῖ, cf. PSI III. 162.11 (A.D. 286) παραμεῖναι ἐν τῷ ἐκῖσαι (l. ἐκεῖσε) κατασκευαζομένῳ βαλανίῳ, ib. IV. 298.6 (iv/A.D. ad init.) μόνον μῆνα ἕνα ἐκεῖσε διαμείναντος, P Oxy IX. 1204.6 (A.D. 299) πρὸς ἐκσφούνγευσιν (cf. Lat. expungere ) τῶν ἐκεῖσε διακειμένων στρατιωτῶν, ";for the discharge of the soldiers stationed there."; This ";pregnant"; construction (Acts 22:5 τοὺς ἐκεῖσε ὄντας, ";those who were (collected) there";) is illustrated by P Petr II. 45ii. 4 (B.C. 246) where, if we may trust the restoration, the writer—probably Ptolemy III. himself (cf. P Petr III. p. 336)—describes how certain ships, acting in his interest, sailed along the coast of Cilicia to Soli and took on board τὰ ἐ [κεῖ ?] σε κατασκεθέντ [α χρή ]ματα, ";the money that had been seized (and carried) there.";
