Vocabulary of the Greek NT

In P Petr II. 10(1).11 (c. B.C. 240) . is used of the ";visit"; of an administrator who makes extortionate demands on the hospitality of the natives—ἐπιπορεύεται ἡμῖν συντάσσων διδόναι εἰς τὰ ξένια χῆνας ι ̄β ̄, ἡμῶν οὐ δυναμένων, ";comes to see us, and orders us to give him for his entertainment twelve geese, this being out of our power"; (Ed.). The verb is fairly common in legal documents = ";proceed against,"; e.g. P Tebt II. 383.38 (A.D. 46) καὶ μὴ ἐπιπορεύεσθαι ἑκάτερον τῷ ἑτέρῳ [ ]φ᾽ ἃ ὁ ἕτ [ερος αὐτῶν κεκλή ]ρωται τρόπῳ μηθενί, ";and neither shall proceed against the other on any account in respect of the shares which each of them has received"; (Edd.) : see also Modica Introduzione, p. 120 f. For the simple meaning ";journey to"; cf. P Lille I. 3.78 (after B.C. 241) συντετάχαμεν Μιύσει τῶι τοπ [ογρ (αμματεῖ) ἐπὶ ] τούτους ἐπιπορεύεσθαι τοὺς τόπο [υς, Chrest. I. 116.3 (ii/iii A.D.) θύε πᾶσι τοῖς θεοῖς. ἐφ᾽ ἕκαστον ἱερὸν ἐπιπορεύου προσκυνῶν, and cf. such an expression as P Tor I. 1 vii. 13 (B.C. 117) καὶ μὴ ἐξεῖναι ἐπὶ τὰ τῶν τετελευτηκότων ἐπιπορεύεσθαι, where it is forbidden to ";approach"; the affairs of the dead, with the view of administering the inheritance, until certain conditions have been fulfilled : see the editor’s note p. 166. We may add Heraclitus Fragm. 71 ψυχῆς πείρατα οὐκ ἂν ἐξεύροιο πᾶσαν ἐπιπορευόμενος ὁδόν · οὕτω βαθὺν λόγον ἔχει, ";travelling over the whole road.";
