This rare verb (Colossians 2:18) is found in a Ptolemaic dispute regarding succession, Preisigke 4512B. .57 (B.C. 167–134) ὅθεν καταβεβραβευμένοι [ . . . . . . . . . . . . ]η ̣ρου συνερι [ο ]υ ἀξιοῦμεν, ἐὰν φαίν [η ]ται, συντάξαι κτλ. See also s.v. βραβεύω, and cf. Vett. Val. p. 344.29 δοκεῖ δὲ καθὼς ὁρῶμεν ἡ γῆ καταβραβεύειν τῶν λοιπῶν ἐπέχουσα αὐτὴ τὰ πάντα ὡς πρόγονος. A certain sense of ";assumption"; and ";officialism"; connected with the word may have led Paul to prefer it to κατακρίνω in Col l.c. : see Field Notes, p. 196 f.
