P Petr III. 46(3).11 εἰς τοὺς ἐπαρθέντας τοίχους (corrected from τὸν ἐπαρθέντα), ";walls built to a greater height"; (Edd.). P Oxy X. 1272.12 (A.D. 144) καὶ τὴν τοῦ πεσσοῦ θύραν ἐπηρ [μ ]ένην ";and that the door of the terrace had been lifted"; (Edd.). Syll 737.24 (ii/A.D.) ";whoever wishes the resolutions just read to be passed and inscribed on a pillar—ἀράτω τὴν χεῖρα. πάντες ἐπῆραν, ";where the compound following the simplex has the stronger perfective force (Proleg. p. 113). As illustrating the Jewish (Psa. 28꞉2 [MT Psalms 29:2]) and Christian (1 Timothy 2:8) as well as Pagan (Virg. Aen. i. 93) practice of ";lifting up"; hands in prayer, reference may be made to the two uplifted hands shown on the stele inscribed with the Jewish prayer for vengeance found at Rheneia : see Deissmann LAE, Fig. 64, p. 424. MGr παίρ (ν)ω, ";take,"; ";fetch.";
