BGU IV. 1208.46 (B.C. 27) μεταπε [μ ]φθ ̣εὶς ὑπὸ σοῦ ὁ [Καλατ ]ύτις ἐξηγή [σατό μ ]οι ἀκεραίως (";afresh";), OGIS 763.38 (ii/B.C.) μετὰ πλεί ]ονος σπουδῆς διελέχθησαν ἐξηγο [ύμενοι σύμπαν ]τος τοῦ πλήθους πρὸς ἡμᾶς ἐκτενε [στάτην τε καὶ ] εἰλικρινῆ τὴν εὔνοιαν : cf. Syll 660.4 (iv/B.C.) καθότι Σκιρ [ίδα ]ι ἐξηγούμενοι εἰσφέρουσι (sc. εἰς τὸν δῆμον), where the editor notes ";Sciridarum gens ius habet de iure sacro respondendi (ἐξηγεῖσθαι), ut apud Athenienses Eumolpidae."; Numerous exx. of the technical use of the verb, and of its corresponding subst. to denote the communication of divine and other secrets are given by Wetstein ad John 1:18, e.g. Pollux VIII. 124 ἐξηγηταὶ δὲ ἐκαλοῦντο οἱ τὰ περὶ τῶν διοσημείων καὶ τὰ τῶν ἄλλων ἱερῶν διδάσκοντες. See also the combination of the offices of ἱερεύς and ἐξηγητής in P Oxy III. 477.4 (A.D. 132–3) and the discussion on the varied duties of the ἐξηγητής in Hohlwein L’Égypte Romaine, p. 224 ff., and in Archiv iii. p. 351 f.
