For this NT ἅπ. εἰρ. (Acts 16:20) = ";graviter turbare"; rather than perfective ";conturbare"; (Vg.), see P Gen I. 1.12 (A.D. 213) as amended (Add. p. 35) μηδὲ ἐκταράσσειν τοὺς γεωργούς. The verb is suggested by Mahaffy (Empire of the Ptolemies, p. 322) in OGIS 90.27 (Rosetta stone—B.C. 196) καὶ τὴν χώραν ἐ [κταράξ ?]αντας καὶ τὰ ἱερὰ ἀδικήσαντας.
