We are unable to cite from our sources any instance of this word (Hebrews 11:36) which Grimm pronounces to be ";unknown to prof, auth.";, but a related form συμπαιγμός = ";collusion"; is found in P Tor. I. 1 vi. 15 (B.C. 117–6) ἀγνοούντων τῶν ἀντιδίκων, εἴ τινα συνπαιγμὸν ποιεῖται τῆι Λοβαίτι μόνηι, ";nam adversarii haud liquido compertum habent, utrum colluserit cum una Lobaite"; (Ed.).
