The verb is frequent in inscriptions with the sense ";erection"; of a monument, see Syll 324.8, 342.48 (both i/B.C.), C. and B. ii. p. 637 (A.D. 70–80), IMAe iii. 478, 479, 481 (all ii/A.D.), Magn 179.28 f., 193.25, and for the verb Syll 656.71, 686.45 (both ii/A.D.), al. So still in A.D. 215, BGU I. 362 vii. 3 (= Chrest. I. p. 128) ὑπὲρ ἀνα [στάσεω ]ς the ";setting up"; of a statue of Severus, and probably ib IV. 1028.6 (ii/AD.) ὁλκῆς μν ]ῶν δ ̄ πρὸς α ̣̓[νά ]σ ̣τ ̣ασιν ̣ [ . . ., but the context is not clear. The narrative of Acts 17:1-34 (see v. 32) prepares us for the total novelty of the meaning ";resurrection"; : it was a perfectly natural use of the word, but the idea itself was new. We find this meaning in C. and B. no. 232 (= Cagnat IV. 743, Alexander Severus), where an Epicurean Jew of Eumeneia in Phrygia begins to tell us what he thought of ο ]ἱ δὴ δ [είλ ]αιοι πάντ [ες ] εἰς ἀ [νά ]στασιν [ . . . (βλέποντες or the like) : see Ramsay’s interesting notes.
