For this word, which is peculiar to Luke in the NT, we may cite P Hib I. 66.3 (B.C. 228) καθότι ὑμῖν καὶ Ἀσκληπιάδης γέγραφεν, P Amh I I . 49.3 (B.C. 108) καθότι πρόκειται, P Tebt II. 386.23 (B.C. 12) καθότι προγέγραπται, etc. The meaning ";as,"; ";just as,"; is seen in P Eleph 24.8 (iii/B.C.) καθότι ἂν ἡμῖν ἐπιδείξωσιν οἱ βασιλικοὶ γραμματεῖς, P Ryl II. 154.19 (contract of marriage—A.D. 66) καθότι π ̣[ρότ ]ε ̣ρ ̣ο ̣ν ̣ [συ ]νεβίουν, P Oxy XII. 1473.16 (A.D. 201) καθότι πρὸς ἀλλήλους συνεχώρησαν, Michel 534.28 (iii/B.C. ad init.) καθότι ἂν δοκεῖ αὐτοῖς. For the iterative force of ἄν in this last ex. cf. Acts 2:45 : practically the same phrase, though now with the subjunctive, is found in PSI IV. 415.9 (iii/B.C.) καθ᾽ ὅ τι ἄν σου τυγχάνηι [χρ ]εία [ν ] ἔχων.
