Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For this verb = ";am on a journey,"; which in the NT is confined to Luke 10:33, cf. P Oxy XIV. 1771.10 (iii/iv A.D.) μετὰ γὰρ τὸ ὁδεῦσε (l. σαι) ταῦτα ἐκώλυσαν τὸν καμηλείτην κἀμὲ μὴ ἆρε (l. ἆραι) , ἀλ᾽ (l. ἀλλ᾽ ἔτι ἐπιμεῖναι τοῖς ἐνθάδε —directions about certain measures of wine. See also the words transcribed by the traveller Cosmas from a monument in Nubia in the first half of vi/A.D., OGIS 199.28 ἐκέλευσα καὶ ὁδεύεσθαι μετ᾽ εἰρήνης καὶ πλέεσθαι. It may be worth while to recall the metaphorical use of περιοδεύω in Epicurus (cf. Linde Epic. p. 54) and in Epictetus (e.g. iii. 15. 7) = ";investigate thoroughly.";
