Vocabulary of the Greek NT

A good example of this judicial verb is afforded by P Par 35.34 ff (a petition to King Ptolemy Philometor, B.C. 163) ἐάν σοι φαίνηται, συντάξαι καταστῆσαι ἐπί σε ὑπὲρ μὲν [ἐμο ]ῦ ἀπολογιούμενον Δημήτριον ";to make my defence"; : cf. P Strass I. 5.15 (A.D. 262) ἀπολ ]ο ̣γησομένους πρὸς τὰ [ ]εὶ α [ ]ρόμενα αὑτοῖς and OGIS 609.39 (A.D. 231) μή τις ὡς ἀγνοήσας ἀπολογήσηται. Vettius Valens p. 209.13 βασιλεῖ ἀπολογήσεται, καὶ ἐὰν μὴ ὑπὲρ ἑαυτοῦ, ὑπὲρ ἑτέρου δέ (cf. p. 269.20). Cf. for a cognate verb P Petr III. 53 (n).8 (iii/B.C.) (= Witkowski.2, p. 45) πρὸς αἰτίαν, ὑπὲρ ἧς ἀπ ]ολογίζεται, ";to meet a charge against him, and make his defence"; (Edd.), OGIS 315.33 (B.C. 164–3) καὶ αὐτὸς ὑπὲρ ὧν ἔφησεν ἔχειν τὰς ἐντολὰς διὰ πλειόνων ἀπελογίσατο, P Leid A.31 (Ptol) ἀπολογίσωμαι (needlessly corrected to –ήσωμαι by Leemans), al. See Hatzidakis Einl. p. 395, ";sagte man auch im Alterthum sowohl ἀπολογέομαι als ἀπολογίζομαι,"; and Mayser Gr. p. 83 f. The verb is found in MGr.
