Vocabulary of the Greek NT

Syll 276.28 (Lampsacus, c. B.C. 195) . . . ὅταν παρ᾽ αὐτοῦ λ ]άβωσιν ἀποκρίσεις τὰς ἁρμοζούσας τ [ . . ., ib. 177.62 (Teos, B.C. 303) οἰόμεθα δὲ [δεῖν ἀποδειχθῆ ]ναι τρεῖς ἄνδρας εὐθὺς ὅταν [ ] ἀπόκ [ρι ]σις ἀναγνωσθῆι, ib. 314.15 (ii/B.C., Messenian dialect) ἔδοξε τοῖς συνέδροις ἀπόκρισιν δόμεν διότι κτλ., ib. 928.21 (Magnesia, ii/B.C. init.) τὴν Μυλασέων ἀπόκρισιν to the praetor M. Aemilius. From the papyri we can only cite P Oxy VI. 941.9 (vi/A.D.), and other late exx. : like the verb, this word for ";answer"; clearly suffered eclipse, and returned into the language at a late period.

[Supplemental from 1930 edition]

For ἀποκρίτως, see P Oxy XII. 1467.22 (A.D. 263), with note.
