Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For the common Bibl. meaning ";commission,"; ";send forth,"; cf. OGIS 90.20 (Rosetta stone—B.C. 196) προενοήθη δὲ καὶ ὅπως ἐξαποσταλῶσιν δυνάμεις ἱππικαί τε καὶ πεζικαί, Syll 276.19 (a plebiscite of the Lampsacenes—B.C. 196) ὁ δῆμος τοῦ Ῥωμαίων δήμου ἐξαπέσ [τει ]λεν αὐτούς, ib. 295.8 (a decree found at Delphi—c. B.C. 175) ]ξαπ [ε ]σταλκὼς θεωρούς. We may also cite PSI IV. 384.4 (B.C. 248–7) ἐξαπέσταλκεν αὐτὸν. . . εἰς Φιλαδέλφειαν, and for the verb in the judicial sense of ";sending"; before a ruler or tribunal, cf.
