Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For this verb, which is always purely durative in the NT ";sit,"; not ";sit down"; (Proleg. p. 118), we may cite Syll 73755 (c. A.D. 175) ἐὰν δὲ ἱερὸς παῖς ἐξωτικὸς καθεσθεὶς ἀναλώσῃ τὰ πρὸς τοὺς θεοὺς καὶ τὸ Βακχεῖον, ἔστω μετὰ τοῦ πατρὸς ἰόβακχος ἐπὶ μιᾷ σπονδῇ τοῦ πατρός. In the v/A.D. Acts of the martyr Paphnutius we read—Ἄπα Παπνούτιος δὲ ἐκαθέσθη ἐπὶ τὴν γῆν, ε ̣̓κ ̣[αθέσθησαν δὲ αὐ ]ταὶ παρὰ τοὺς πόδας αὐτοῦ (PSI I. 2621) : cf. the Silco rescript OGIS 201.18 (vi/A.D.) οὐκ ἀφῶ αὐτοὺς καθεζόμενοι (for καθεζομένους) εἰς χώραν αὐτῶν,20 οὐκ ἀφῶ αὐτοὺς καθεσθῆναι εἰς τὴν σκιάν. Vett. Val. p. 7824 ποιοῦσι γὰρ ἄρχοντας πόλεων καὶ ἐπὶ δικαστηρίου καθεζομένους.
