A cognate verb appears in BGU IV. 1061.19 (B.C. 14) περὶ ὧν καὶ ἐν αὐτῆι τῆι Σιναρὺ παρεδόθησαν καὶ πρὸς τὸ μὴ ἐκθριαμβισθῆναι τὸ πρᾶγμα ἀπε [λύθησαν, ";for which crimes they were delivered up in Sinary itself, and were released in order that the affair should not be noised abroad."; (So Dr. A. S. Hunt, who kindly notes for us Basil De Spir. Sanct, xxvii. ἐκθριαμβεύειν, and Photius, who glosses θριαμβεύσας with δημοσιεύσας). This meaning is obviously allied to 2 Corinthians 2:14 ";make a show of,"; and contributes additional evidence against the impossible rendering of the AV (cf. Field Notes , p. 181). Lietzmann (HZNT ad l.) prefers to take the verb in the further weakened sense of περιάγειν, ";herümfuhren";; Ramsay (Luke, p. 297 f.), on the other hand, keeps to the military metaphor and translates : ";Thanks be to God, who always leads us (His soldiers) in the train of His triumph"; : cf. also Pope in Exp T xxi. p. 19 ff., Menzies Comm. ad l., and Robertson Gr. p. 148.
