Vocabulary of the Greek NT

A new ex. of this compound occurs in the Alexandrian Erotic Fragment P Grenf I. 1.3 (ii/ B.C.) quoted s.v. καταλείπω ad fin . Both this passage and more particularly Epict. iv. 10. 20 ἀγρυπνῆσαί σε δεῖ, περιδραμεῖν, τὰς χεῖρας καταφιλῆσαι, ";thou must watch, run about, kiss hands,"; where, as Sharp (Epict. p.104) says, stress is laid ";not on kissing fervently, but on the very fact of kissing at all,"; make the RV marg. of Matthew 26:49, al., very doubtful : cf. also Mithrasliturgic (ed. Dieterich) p. 14.23 καταφιλῶν πάλιν τὰ φυλακτήρια καὶ λέγων κτλ., with reference to a spell. On the other hand Menandrea p. 11.56 λαμβάνων μου κατεφίλει | τὰς χεῖρας, ";he caught and kissed my hands";—of one in a passion of gratitude. See Anz Subsidia, p. 334.
