For this late Greek word (= ἐξ αὐτῆς τῆς ὁδοῦ), found six times in the NT, we can supply an almost contemporary instance from P Lond 893.6 (A.D. 40) (published in P Ryl II. p. 381) καλῶς π [οιή ]σ ̣ε ̣ι ̣ς ἐξαυτῆ (ς) πέμψας μοι τ ̣ο ̣, ν ̣ μεικρόν. See also P Ryl II. 236.22 (A.D. 256) ποίησον δὲ ἐξαυτῆς ὤμους δύο ἐλαιουργικοὺς κοπῆναι, ";have two beams (?) cut at once for oil-presses"; (Edd.), P Tebt II. 421.2 (iii/A.D.) (= Selections, p. 106) ἐξαυτῆς ἅμα τῷ λαβεῖν σε ταῦτά μου τὰ γράμματα γενοῦ πρὸς ἐμέ, P Oxy I. 64.3 (iii/iv A.D.) ἐξαυτῆς παράδοτε, ";deliver at once."; The word is fully illustrated by Wetstein ad Mark 6:25.
