";sharing the experiences"; of others (1 Peter 3:8) : cf. OGIS 456.66 (B.C. 27–11) προσενηνεγμένης αὐτῆς (sc. τῆς συγκλήτου) τῇ πόλει συμπαθέστατα. For the subst. cf. ib. 470.24 (time of Augustus) τῇ τῶν Ἑλλήνων συνπα [θείᾳ. In Epicurus συμπάθεια has often the general meaning ";correspondence,"; e.g. Ep. I. 48, 50 (ed. Bailey). Συμπαθηθῆναι is one of the numerous list of passive aorists which are found in the Bvzantine chronicles, though not in Attic Greek : see Psaltes Gr. p. 226.
