Vocabulary of the Greek NT

For the meaning ";restore,"; ";give back,"; see P Petr III. 53 (p).12, where in connexion with certain arrears into which a priest had fallen provision is made πρᾶξαι τοὺς ἐγγύους αὐτοῦ καὶ ἡμῖν ἀποκαταστῆσ [α ]ι, ";that payment be exacted from his sureties and restitution made to us"; (Edd.). P Rein 1715 (B.C. 109) may be cited for its grammar, noteworthy at this early date : ὅπως οἱ αἴτιοι ἀναζη ̣τηθέντες ἐξαποσταλῶ [σ ]ι ἐπὶ τὸν στρατηγόν, [καὶ ] ἐμοὶ μὲν διαπεφωνημένα ἀποκατασ [τα ]θείη, οἱ δὲ αἴτιοι τύχωσι τῶν ἐξακολουθούντων. The passive ἀποκατασταθήσεται occurs in BGU IV. 1060.28 (B.C. 23–2). OGIS 90.18 (Rosetta Stone—B.C. 196) ἀποκατέστησεν εἰς τὴν καθήκουσαν τάξιν. Syll 540.34 (B.C. 175–1) if a workman breaks a stone, ἕτερον ἀποκαταστήσει δόκιμον. P Revill Mél p. 295.5 (B.C. 131–0) (= Witkowski.2, p. 96) μέχρι τοῦ τὰ πράγματ᾽ ἀποκαταστῆναι, P Amh II. 48.10 (B.C. 106) καὶ ἀποκαταστησάτω εἰς οἶκο [ν ] [π ]ρὸς αὐτὴν τοῖς ἰδίοις, ";shall deliver it to her at her house at his own expense"; (Edd.). P Oxy I. 38.12 (A.D. 49–50) (= Selections, p. 53) ὑφ᾽ οὗ καὶ ἀποκατεστάθη μοι ὁ υἱός, ib. II. 278.17 (hire of a mill—A.D. 17) καὶ μετὰ τὸν χρόνον ἀπ [οκα ]ταστησάτωι ὁ μα ̣νης (the servant) τὸν μύλον ὑγιῆι καὶ ἀσινῆι, οἷον καὶ παρείληφεν, ib, VI. 929.17 (ii/iii A.D.) ἀποκαταστῆσαί μοι εἰς Ὀξυρυγχείτην ἐξ ὧν ἔσχον τὰ προκείμενα πάντα, etc. In the long land survey P Tebt I. 61(b).221 (B.C. 118–7) the question is asked with regard to certain land, εἰ [α ]ὐτὴ [ἀνταναι ]ρετέα [ἄλλη δὲ ] ἀπὸ ὑπολόγου ἀνταναιρεθεῖσα ἀποκαταστατέα, ";whether it should be deducted (from the cleruchic land) and other land subtracted from that in the unprofitable list should be substituted"; (Edd.) : cf. a land survey of the second century, where a holding that had become καθ᾽ ὕδατος ἀποκατεστάθ (η) τῷ ἐνεστ [ῶτι ](ἔτει), was ";reclaimed"; in the year in which the survey was written (P Oxy VI. 918 intr.). Note the passive in Vettius Valens, p. 68.24 = ex captivitate redire (Ed.).

For the double augment, which is found in the NT (Matthew 12:18, Mark 8:25, Luke 6:10), cf. such an occasional occurrence in the inscriptions as Calder 8.8 ἀπεκατέστησεν, Letronne 525.8 (ii/A.D.) ἀπεκατεστάθη, and similarly Archiv ii. p. 436, no. 31 (i/A.D.); also P Tebt II. 413.4 (ii/iii A.D.) ἀπεκατέστησα. By the Byzantine period it had become very common. See further Winer-Schmiedel Gr. p. 103, and Brugmann-Thumb Gr. p. 311. Note the perf. ἀποκαθέστακεν, Syll 365.7 (i/A.D.).
