Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For the adverbial use, as in John 7:17, cf. P Tebt II. 289.6 (A.D. 23) οὕτως γὰρ γνώσομαι πότερον ἐπὶ τόπων σε ἐάσω πράττοντά τι ἢ. . ., ";for I shall thus know whether I shall leave you in employment where you are or . . ."; (Edd.). The rare adjectival use (see Proleg. p. 77) is seen in P Lond 1912.74 (A.D. 41) in the address of the Emperor Claudius to the Alexandrines, τῆς δὲ πρὸς Ἰουδαίους ταραχῆς. . . πότεροι μὲν αἴτιοι κατέστησαν, ";as to the question which of you were responsible for the riot against the Jews"; (Bell).
