Vocabulary of the Greek NT

Thackeray, Gr. p. 136, notes its use for ";opposite"; (3 Maccabees 5:16, Acts 20:15) as ";late"; : see his note on these words with movable -ς. Cf. P Oxy I. 43 versoiii. 20 (A.D. 295) καταμένων ἄντικρυς οἰκίας Ἐπιμάχου. P Tebt II. 395.4 (A.D. 150) ἄντικρυς Τυχαίου, ";opposite the temple of Fortune,"; P Oxy III. 471.81 (ii/A.D.) ἄντικρυς ἁπάντων, ";in the presence of all."; P Loud 978.8 (A.D. 331) (= III. p. 233) καὶ κατ᾽ ἄντικρυ [ . . . is before a hiatus. The (Attic) compound καταντικρύ (ς) occurs in Apoc Petr 6, εἶδον δὲ καὶ ἕτερον τόπον καταντικρὺς ἐκείνου αὐχμηρὸν πάνυ, καὶ ἦν τόπος κολάσεως, ";over against that other."; In P Hawara 116 verso.2 .11 (= Archiv v. p. 385 f.) (Antoninus Pius) we read ἀντικ [ρὺ Τυχαίου ] : clearly this may as well have been ἄντικρυς.
