Vocabulary of the Greek NT

διακούω is common in the udicial sense, with gen. person. as in Acts 23:35. Thus P Grenf I. 11i. 8 (B.C. 157) διακούσαντα [αὐτῶν προσανενεγκεῖν ] ἐπὶ σὲ τ [ὰ συ ]γκεκριμένα, so ii. 8, P Fay 119.12 (c. A.D. 100) ἐπιστολὴν τοῦ ἡγεμόνος πρὸς Διονύσιν τὸν στρατηγὸν διακοῦσαι αὐτοῦ, P Giss I. 46.11 (time of Hadrian—petition to the Praefect) ἀξιοῦμέν σε τὸν τοῦ νομοῦ βοηθὸν διακοῦσαι ἡμῶν, BGU I. 168.28 (ii/iii A.D.) ὅθεν ἀξιῶ. . . διακοῦσαί μου πρὸς αὐτούς, P Lond 924.16 (A.D. 187–8) (= III. p. 135), etc. In Syll 929.29 (ii/B.C.) καὶ καθίσαντες ἐν τῷ ἱε [ρ ]ῶι τῆς Ἀρτέμιδος τῆς Λευκοφρυηνῆς διηκούσαμεν τῶν διαφερομένων, we have gen. rei.
