PSI IV. 420.9 (iii/B.C.) ἐκελεύοσαν (for form cf. Mayser Gr, p. 322 f.) δέ με καταβαίνοντα συγχωνεύειν, P Par 44.4 (B.C. 153) τί κελεύεις ὑπὲρ τούτων; P Meyer 3.15 (A.D. 148) ἵν᾽ οὖν τὸ κελευσθ (ὲν) εἰδῇς, P Tebt II. 327.21 (late ii/A.D.) κε ]κελευσμένου οὖν, κύριε, γ [υ ]ναῖκας ἀφεῖσθαι τῶν τ [οιο ]ύτων χρειῶν, ";wherefore, my lord, since it has been decreed that women should be exempt from such burdens"; (Edd.). For the gen. abs. without noun or pronoun in agreement in this last instance cf. Matthew 17:14, Acts 21:31 (proleg. p. 74), and with the constr. in Acts 25:23 cf. Michel 594.53 (B.C. 279) τούτοις ἐδώκαμεν, ἀρχιτέκτονος καὶ ἐπιμελητῶν κελευόντων, τὴμ πρώτην δόσιν δραχμάς κτλ. The somewhat rare constr. of κελεύω with a dat., as in the ";received"; text of Matthew 15:35, is seen in Menander Περικειρ.224 τί δ᾽ ἐστιν ὃ κελεύεις ἐμοί; Note also that in a school-book of iii/A.D., published by Kenyon in JHS xxix. (1909), p. 34.129, we find— κελεύω τούτῳ.
