Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The verb is used in P Ryl II. 138.15 (A.D. 34) of a thief’s incursion, just as εἰσπηδάω : κατέλαβα τοῦτον διὰ νυκτὸς ἡλμένον εἰς κτλ . ";I detected him when under cover of night he had sprung into the farmstead"; (Edd.). It is recurrent in the curious document P Ryl I. 28 (iv/A.D.), on divination by ";quivering"; of various parts of the body.
