Vocabulary of the Greek NT

This verb is not so common as we might have expected, but see P Oxy IX. 1202.8 (A.D. 217) ἐνγίζοντος τοῦ ἑκάστου ἔτους ἀγῶνος, ";as the contest of each year approaches,"; and P Gen I. 74.17 (probably iii/A.D.) εἶπ ]ε ̣ν αὐτῷ μὴ ἐγ [γ ]ίζειν τῷ γρ. . τει. For the constr. with the gen., as in 1 Maccabees 11:4; 1 Maccabees 13:23, cf. P Thead 17.12 (A.D. 322) οὐκ ἐπε [τρέ ]ψαντο οὔτε τῆς [θύ ]ρας τοῦ ἐποικίου ἐνγίσαι μεθ᾽ ὕβρεων.
