Vocabulary of the Greek NT

This word, which in the NT is found only once (Acts 9:18) in its literal meaning of ";fall off,"; occurs in a derived sense in P Par 47.27 (c. B.C. 153)(= Witkowski.2 p. 90, Selections p. 23) ἰ καὶ αὑτοὺς δεδώκαμεν καὶ ἀποπεπτώκαμεν ";(one can never again show face in Tricomia for very shame), if we have both given ourselves up and collapsed."; Witkowski compares Polyb. i. 87.1 πίπτω ταῖς ἐλπίσιν. The verb also occurs in the philosophical fragment P Flor II. 113iii. 19 (ii/A.D.) ἀποπείπτειν τὰ ὦ [τα καὶ αὐ ]τὰς ἀχρείους γενέσθαι : cf. Archiv vi. p. 239.
