Vocabulary of the Greek NT

A good ex. of the trans use of this verb, as in 1 Corinthians 6:4, Ephesians 1:20, Ev. Petr. 3, is afforded by P Oxy XII. 1469.7 (A.D. 298) ὁ τῇ ἐπίξει (l. ἐπείξει) τῶν χωμάτων ἐπικείμενος καθείζων ἡμᾶς τοὺ [ς ο ]ἰκίζοντας τοῖς τόπο [ι ]ς ἠνάγκασεν ἀ [ν ]αβαλεῖν ναύβια σ ̄ν ̄, ";the overseer of labour on dykes set us, the local inhabitants, to work, and made us bank up 250 naubia"; (Edd.). For the intrans. usage, as probably in John 19:13 (see P. Corssen ZNTW, 1914, p. 338 ff.), with reference to ";judicial"; sitting, see Syll 929.28 (ii/B.C.) cited s.v. διακούω, and cf. PSI V. 502.21 (B.C. 257–6) καθίσαντες εἰς τὸ ἱερόν, P Meyer 19.5 (ii/A.D.) τῇ ι ̄α ̄ ἐκάθισα εἰς πλ [ο ]ῖόν [μου, Preisigke 4117.5 (A.D. 117) τὸ προσκύνημα ἀνδρὸς ἀγαθοῦ καὶ ἁγνοτάτου ὧδε καθίσαντος τρίς, also Aristeas 94. The verb survives in MGr. For καθιζάνω used intransitively as in early poetry, cf. P Par 51.20 (B.C. 160) (= Selections, p. 20).
