This word has hitherto been found only in Acts 16:37; Acts 22:25, and though ";uncondemned"; (AV, RV) is its natural meaning, this does not suit the context. Accordingly Blass thinks that it may there = Attic ἄκριτος, which can be used of a cause not yet tried. See also Ramsay St Paul, p. 225, where it is pointed out that Paul in claiming his rights would probably use the Roman phrase re incognita, ";without investigating our case,"; and that this was inadequately rendered by the Lucan ἀκατάκριτος.
