The curious forms κατεάξω, etc. (Blass Gr. p. 52, Rader-macher Gr. p. 69 f.) can now be illustrated from BGU III. 908.25 (time of Trajan) κατέαξαν ἐνίων οἰκιῶν τὰς θύρας, P Flor II. 185.7 (A.D. 254) τὰ δὲ κανθήλεια (";pack-saddles";) . . κατεαγμένα καὶ ἄχρηστα : cf. ib. 175.7 (A.D. 255) and Syll 588.10 (c. B.C. 180) κατεαγότες. The subst. occurs bis in connexion with a wound in the head, BGU II. 647.12 f, (A.D. 130) ὑπὲρ τὸν ἀριστερὸν κρόταφον τῆς κεφαλῆς τραῦμα κατέαγμα ἐπὶ βάθους, ἐν ᾧ εὗρον μι [κρ ]ὰ κατεάγματα λ [ ]θ [ο ]υ : cf. P Amh II. 93.19 (A.D. 181) ἐὰν δέ τις ἐπισκευῆς ἢ ἀνοικοδομῆς ἢ καταιάγματος ξυλικῶν ἢ ἀργαλίων ὁμοίως ὄντων πρὸ (l. πρὸς) σὲ τὸν Στοτοῆτιν, ";if any repairs or rebuilding or breakage of wood-work or tools occur you, Stotoëtis, shall be responsible"; (Edd.).
