Vocabulary of the Greek NT

With the phrase κατὰ συγκυρίαν in Luke 10:31 we may compare κατὰ δέ τινα συν (τυχεί)αν τελευτήσαντος αὐτοῦ ἐν τῆι Διο (σπόλ)ει in P Tor II. 8.63 (B.C. 119).

For the verb see P Hib I. 82.19 (B.C. 239–8) περὶ τῶν εἰς ταῦτα συγκυρόντων, ";in all that concerns this,"; and its common use in connexion with the ";appurtenances"; of a house, e.g. P Tebt II. 381.12 (A.D. 123) (= Selections, p. 78) οἰκίαν καὶ αὐλὴν καὶ τὰ συνκύρωντα (for form see OGIS p. 117) πάντα. Συγκυρέω is similarly used in P Oxy VI. 907.9 (A.D. 276) χρηστήρια καὶ συνκυροῦντα πάντα, ";utensils and all appurtenances."; In the Greek Pentateuch συνκυροῦντα is one of the four terms to denote ";suburbs"; (see Thackeray Gr. i. p. 4 n..4) : cf. P Lond 604.2 (A.D. 47) (= III. p. 71) παρὰ. . . Σωτη ̣[ρίχ ]ο (υ) κωμογραμμ (ατέως) Κροκοδείλων πόλεως καὶ τ [ῶν σ ]υνκυρουσῶν κωμῶν.
