Vocabulary of the Greek NT

The verb is restored (Berichtigungen, p. 322) in P Oxy III. 471.41 (ii/A.D.), where an advocate asks—ταῦτ [α δὲ ἐκ ] τίνος αἰτ [ ]α ̣ς ̤ σ [εσίγη ]κας; ";what reason had you for being silent regarding this?"; For the compd. κατασιγάω, ";become silent,"; cf. CP Herm I. 25ii. 2 (iii/A.D.) οὔτε συσκευα [ὶ οὔ ]τε ἀπειλαὶ κατεσίγησαν μ ̣[ . . .

Herwerden (Lex. s.v.) cites the saying of Simonides apud Plut. Mor. 125 D ἔλεγε μηδέποτ᾽ αὐτῷ μεταμελῆσαι σιγήσαντι, φθεγξαμένῳ δὲ πολλάκις.
