The verb = ";report,"; ";announce"; (as Mark 6:30) is found in P Lond 42.25 ff. (B.C. 168) (= I. p. 30, Selections, p. 11) ἔτι δὲ καὶ Ὥρου τοῦ τὴν ἐπιστολὴν παρακεκομικό [το ]ς ἀπηγγελκότος ὑπὲρ τοῦ ἀπολελύσθαι σε ἐκ τῆς κατοχῆς παντελῶς ἀηδίζομαι, ";and now that Horus who brought the letter has reported about your having been released from your retreat, I am utterly distressed."; So P Tebt II. 297.7 (c. A.D. 123) ἀ ̣π ̣η ̣νγ [ει ]λεν τὴν τάξιν ὡς ὀφείλουσαν πραθῆναι, ";reported that the office ought to be sold."; Abbott, Joh. Voc. p. 164, has a good note on the force of ἀπ. = ";report, bring word"; in John 16:25 : he illustrates it from Epictetus. In the interesting proceedings before a Roman Emperor, P Oxy I. 33 (late ii/A.D.), the word seems almost to have the legal sense of ";appeal,"; as when the accused man exclaims, v. 6 ff. : ὑπὲρ τῆς ἐμαυτοῦ εὐγενείας. . . ἀπαγγέλλ [ω ], ";I appeal on behalf of my nobility"; (Edd.).
