Vocabulary of the Greek NT

We have no citations for this word, which is literary in classical and post-classical times. The difficulty in Luke 11:53 is the factitive sense, i.e. ";to make repeat answers,"; for which the only adequate parallel in Wetstein’s long list is a use of the passive assigned by Pollux (i. 102) to Plato, = ὑπὸ τῶν διδασκάλων ἐρωτᾶσθαι τὰ μαθήματα, ὡς ἀπὸ στόματος λέγειν τὸ αὐτό. It may be added that Grimm’s reference to ";στοματίζω —not extant"; is misleading : the verb was formed directly from ἀπὸ στόματος, just as ἐνωτίζομαι from ἐν ὠτί, etc.
