P Petr III. 42 H (8)f .21 (mid. iii/B.C.) ἡμέρας κ ̄ ἐκάθητο, P Par 18.11 κάτισον ἕς (l. κάθησον ἕως) ἴδωμεν τί μέλλομεν ποιεῖν, BGU IV. 1141.33 (B.C. 14) εὑρι ̣σ ̣κ ̣ω ̣ι ̣ αὐτὸν καθήμενο (ν), ib. 1078.8 (A.D. 39) οὐ γὰρ ἀργὸν δεῖ με καθῆσθαι. With the use of κάθημαι in Acts 23:3, cf. the curious interview between an Emperor (? Commodus) and a certain Appianus, who has been condemned to death, where, in view of an impending riot, a soldier is represented as saying to the Emperor—κύριε, κάθῃ Ῥωμαῖοι γονγύζο [υσ ]ι, ";Lord, while you are sitting in judgement, the Romans are murmuring"; (Edd.) (P Oxy I. 33 verso iii. 13, late ii/A.D.). For the form κάθου (Mark 12:36, Acts 2:34, from Psa. 110꞉1 [MT Psalms 111:1]), see Maidhof, p. 300 : cf. Menander Fragm. p. 254, where Kock quotes other three passages from comic poets. With Pelagia-Legenden, p. 4.4 καθημένη εἰς βαδιστήν, ";seated on an ass,"; Musonius p. 43.18 καθῆσθαι εἰς Σινώπην, ";to settle in S.,"; cf. Mark 13:3, Acts 8:40. Musonius p. 59.7, uses the word of an idle, sedentary life. For the Aramaism in Mark 4:1 see s.v. ἐμβαίνω. MGr κάθομαι.
