In P Oxy I. 34i. 13 (A.D. 127) a prefect uses this word in directing Government clerks whose business it was to ";examine"; documents and glue them into τόμοι. This is one of the words which Grimm characterizes as ";not found in prof, auth.,"; occurring first in LXX. The compound (Acts 22:24; Acts 22:29), now vindicated as sufficiently ";profane,"; was as rare as its simplex (cf. Wisdom of Solomon 2:19) : it may be suspected that the common ἐξετάζω ";to get out the truth,"; (ἐτεός —see Boisacq Dict. Etym., p. 291) was the original from which both ἐτάζω and ἀνετάζω (and παρετάζω in Arcadian) were devised.
